Ga. lawmakers look to allow vote on firework sales

ATLANTA — The Georgia state Senate has passed a resolution to let voters decide whether fireworks sales should be legal in the state.

The resolution passed Tuesday in a 44-5 vote and must gain at least 120 votes in the House to be included on a ballot. The Senate resolution proposes amending the state’s constitution to allow fireworks sales if Georgians vote to legalize it.  

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/YaSxtI ) reports revenue from fireworks sales would be used to pay for trauma care and firefighter services.
