Certain fireworks now legal in New Jersey

NEW JERSEY - July 4th will be a little more festive in New Jersey this year.

On Wednesday, Governor Chris Christie signed a bill that will allow various types of sparklers and novelty fireworks to be sold.

Those include hand-held sparklers and ground-based sparklers, and novelty items like party poppers and snappers.

Those items will be permitted in retail stores and can be sold to anyone 16-years-old or older.

All other fireworks, like explosive fireworks and aerial fireworks, such as bottle rockets or Roman candles, remain illegal.
