What will local lawmakers decide about the Iowa fireworks ban?

What will local lawmakers decide about the Iowa fireworks ban? (MGN Online)

A nearly 80-year ban on fireworks in Iowa was erased recently with the signature of Governor Terry Brandstad. That move made it legal to sell fireworks in the Hawkeye State.

Now, cities and counties across Iowa are scrambling to decide whether or not to allow people to use the pyrotechnics.

"You may well be able to buy them by June 1st, but locally we can have an ordinance that says you can only fire them from June 15th to July 5th," said Jerry Parker, Wapello County supervisor.

But a pushback on the use may not only come from the various local governments, but from the citizens themselves.

KTVO's Louis Finley learns more about the final details and counties' plans Thursday at 10.
