New Fireworks Law
During the 2011 General Session of the Utah State Legislature, the legislature passed H.B.22, Fire Prevention and Fireworks Act Amendments. This bill expanded the category of permitted fireworks to be used over the Fourth of July, Pioneer Day and Chinese New Year holidays. It has also changed the dates on which fireworks can be used, expanding the time line to span an entire month from June 26 to July 26; on December 31 and January 1; and the day before and on Chinese New Year.
While state law now permits the sale and use of new types of fireworks, some Utah cities have already banned their use in some locations because of fire danger. Check your city ordinances before taking advantage of the newly relaxed fireworks law.
