STATE NEWS ROUNDUP: Fireworks number one expense on July 4th
Wisconsinites generally don’t spend much money for the Fourth-of-July – unless they’re caught with illegal fireworks. In Milwaukee, all fireworks are illegal – even the sparklers, smoke bombs, and little ground displays that are allowed in many Wisconsin communities. Fines range up to a-thousand-dollars. Officials encourage folks to check their local laws before stocking up.
