Iowa House advances fireworks, impaired driving bills

DES MOINES — Legal fireworks and tougher penalties for distracted drivers involved in fatalities were approved by Iowa House committees ahead of a Friday deadline for legislation to win support in both chambers of the Legislature.

Both bills had been approved in other committees, as well as in the Senate, but had to win passage in the House Ways and Means Committee because of fees and taxes involved.

Senate File 489 legalizing fireworks went off but not without several committee members trying to douse the bill that would allow the sale and display of pyrotechnics around the Fourth of July and during the Christmas-New Year’s day holiday period. It was approved 14-10 with bipartisan support and opposition.
