Senate Defeats Bottle Rocket Bill

Posted:

An attempt to repeal a law banning the sale of bottle rockets in North Dakota has failed.

The North Dakota Senate defeated the bill this afternoon.

The legislature banned bottle rockets in 2009.

However it is still ok to get them elsewhere and set them off in the state.

The House approved the measure earlier this session.

Senator George Sinner says there's a reason bottle rockets should be restricted in the state.

His nephew lost eyesight in one eye from a bottle rocket incident.

Sen. George Sinner / (R) Fargo: "My friends this bill is not about liberty. This bill is a bill for the fireworks industry to sell more stuff.">>

The legislature did pass a different fireworks related bill that allows fireworks to be sold between December 26 and January 1st.
