As the season for fireworks approached in 2015, the state of Ohio eliminated part of law that made many residents lie. The state’s governor signed a provision that eliminated a requirement that required anyone who purchased fireworks to sign a form promising to take the fireworks out of the state within 48 hours. Authorities said that though everyone signed the form, the sights and sounds around July 4th indicated that they stayed in state. The provision was so well known in the state that it was commonly referred to the “Liar’s Law.” The state legislature almost legalized the use of consumer fireworks at the end of the session, but ran out of time before completing the measure. Some people say the changes in the law have only created more confusion. William Weimer, vice president of Phantom Fireworks, based in Youngstown said, “They have eliminated the statement but haven’t changed the law. So, I think it’s going to be a bit confusing next year. It doesn’t clean it up at all. I think it confuses it a little more.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.
