As a crowd of legislators and other supporters looked on, Gov. Terry Branstad today signed a bill legalizing the sale and use of commercial-grade fireworks in the state for the first time since the 1930’s.
The bill goes into effect at once.
The governor expects the Fire Marshal’s Office to have rules in place to enable the sale and use of fireworks for this 4th of July.
Applause broke out as the governor signed the bill.
“Let the fireworks begin,” Branstad declared.
