Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Vancouver city council is considering a ban on aerial fireworks, bad news for Oregonians who found refuge from their own state's ban on the devices by crossing the state line.
The Oregonian reported that the council approved a first reading of the ordinance June 11 and has scheduled a public hearing and second reading for Monday.
The proposed restrictions were based on safety concerns of emergency responders and residents. Fireworks can be legally used from July 1 to the Fourth of July.
The proposal would still permit hand-held sparkling devices, cones, fountains, sparklers, ground spinners, snakes and smoke devices.
If the ordinance passes, it would take effect next year.
