If you live in Illinois and your 4th of July celebration didn’t have quite the bang you wanted, that may change

State Senator Chapin Rose who is a Republican form Mahomet is proposing loosening fire works regulations.

Rose says he’s working on a bill for the spring session that would legalize consumer fireworks and channel the sales tax revenue they produce would be channeled to rural service agencies, such as ambulance and fire districts and the University of Illinois Extension.

Rose says many may cross borders with neighboring states to buy fireworks and that’s bad for the Illinois economy.
