Ga. lawmakers look to allow vote on firework sales
By The Associated Press
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.
Revenue from fireworks sales would be used to pay for trauma care and firefighter services.
