HARRISBURG – Lancaster County Sen. Ryan Aument has sent a letter to the Chairman of the Senate Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee requesting that he convene a hearing for the purpose of reviewing the expansion of the sale of fireworks and ways to address the issues created by it. In 2017, PA’s fireworks law was amended to expand access for Pennsylvanians to purchase certain consumer-grade options which were previously not permitted. Aument, who voted against the expansion of the fireworks law, said his office has fielded dozens of calls and emails with complaints since the passage of the expansion. While many of the complaints are due to the nuisance these fireworks cause, this past July 4th weekend, many state residents experienced preventable tragedies due to the careless misuse or malfunction of fireworks.
