A sensible and good fireworks bill passed the Texas House today. Rep Wayne Smith introduced a bill that would allow the transport of fireworks through municipalities provided they are in their original and unopened packaging:
This will curtail much of the harrassment fireworks fans suffer from cities. Corpus Christi, Texas is infamous for confiscating fireworks shipments travelling through their city. El Paso and other towns create “blockades” to prevent fireworks from passing through town.
On to the Senate!
Good things are happening and it’s raining!
