Nozzolio's Sparkler Bill Vetoed Again by Cuomo

State Senator Michael Nozzolio will not be lighting up sparklers next July 4th.  

Governor Andrew Cuomo again has vetoed a bill, sponsored by Nozzolio, to allow sparklers in New York State.

The sparkler bill would have allowed the sale of sparklers -- along with other small firework devices, like “snaps” -- outside of New York City in the weeks preceding two holidays: the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve. It was a modified version of a bill vetoed by Cuomo last year. The bill was sponsored by Nozzolio and Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Morelle, of Irondequoit.

The governor said he wants local governments to have a say. “I believe that a municipality should only be subject to this legislation if it has affirmatively enacted a local law election to be so covered,” Cuomo wrote in his veto message. “For this reason, I disapprove this legislation.”

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed 35 bills into law late Wednesday and vetoed 33 others.

Among those signed by Cuomo were bills increasing oversight of special-education providers, easing requirements for a business tax credit for hiring high-school students, modernizing state laws that govern non-profits and requiring manufacturers to collect old mercury thermostats.
