Governor Linda Lingle signed a bill into law yesterday that gives individual counties the authority to limit or ban fireworks.  Act 170 allows counties to enact ordinances that are more stringent than what the state already has in place.

The new law also establishes a task force to make recommendations to prevent the illegal importation of fireworks into the state.
