ACC-003: Fireworks Regulation

Fireworks Regulation: The Wisconsin Medical Society opposes eliminating the authority of local governments (cities, villages and towns) to adopt ordinances that regulate the possession of fireworks, or that define fireworks to include devices excluded from the fireworks regulation under state law. The Society also opposes easing restrictions on fireworks possession, which would jeopardize public health and safety. (HOD, 0411)*
