Firework sales and celebrations will be a little different this year, but not because of covid, but thanks to work done by the Nebraska Legislature this session.
Senator Julie Slama’s fireworks bill was signed by Governor Ricketts that allows the sale of some items that were previously prohibited in Nebraska.
Examples of the now legal fireworks include nighttime parachutes and bottle rockets.
