Fireworks

The law prohibiting the purchase or use of fireworks was passed by the State Legislature in 1941. ISPB advocated for passage of this law because too many tragedies occurred at the hands of amateurs every 4th of July. In 1954, Illinois also banned the shipment of fireworks from out of state. To this day, ISPB advocates to maintain the ban on consumer fireworks when it is questioned in the state legislature.
