Black Hills counties want right to ban fireworks

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Fourteen counties in and around the Black Hills have agreed to push for legislation that gives counties the option to ban fireworks.

The Black Hills Association of County Commissioners passed a resolution that says counties with property in the National Forest, National Grassland or within the Black Hills Fire District should have the ability to ban fireworks.

The proposal now moves to the South Dakota Association of County Commissioners convention this month. It could then get sponsored by a lawmaker for the next legislative session.

Pennington County Commissioner Ron Buskerud says it will be a challenge to get legislation approved because of the strong fireworks lobby.
