Representative Richard Bastien to Hold Press Conference

Representative Richard Bastien (R–Gardner) will hold a press conference tomorrow to discuss legislation that he has filed relative to legalizing the sale of fireworks in Massachusetts.

In anticipation of the July 4th holiday weekend, Representative Bastien will be addressing his legislation, House Bill 3372, An Act Relative to the Sale and Use of Fireworks. If passed, this bill would provide cities and towns in the Commonwealth with the option to legalize consumer fireworks. With the sale of fireworks being legal in 46 other states, Representative Bastien will present information about the legalization of consumer fireworks.

Representative Bastien will be joined at the press conference by experts from the fireworks industry.

The press conference will be held tomorrow (Wednesday) at 2:00p.m. on the Winchendon, MA side of the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border, across from the Atlas Fireworks Store (1212 Route 202 Rindge NH, 03461).
