LB152, introduced by Sen. Julie Slama of Peru, adopts the federal standard of consumer fireworks, which is more permissive than current Nebraska law. The bill also authorizes the State Fire Marshal to test commercially available fireworks in response to complaints and declare them unsafe if necessary.

The bill passed on a 42-3 vote and takes effect immediately.
