Mo. fireworks laws now in line with federal restrictions
Governor Jay Nixon has signed legislation that brings Missouri’s fireworks laws in line with federal statutes.
The governor’s office said Monday that the measure makes any fireworks allowed under federal law legal in Missouri. It also removes a discrepancy between state and federal law on the labeling of fireworks.
Nixon says the changes should make it easier for communities or organizations that sponsor Fourth of July fireworks displays. They take effect immediately.
