Bar Fireworks
Safer Celebrations Aimed
At ByLegislatures
CHICAGO, June 26.-(1P)-Aiming
at safer celebrations of the Fourth
of July, five state legislatures enact-
ed laws during current sessions to
regulate the use, distribution and
possession of fireworks.
The assemblies of Utah and West
Virginia approved measures outlaw-
ing fireworks, except for public,
supervised exhibitions.
Certain types of fireworks were
designated as dangerous in Califor-
nia's first statute regulating pyro-
technics. Connecticut's legislature
tightened existing regulations and
forbade the sale of fireworks to chil-
dren under 12. A new Pennsylvania,
law prohibits the sale and use of
fireworks except toy cap pistols.
