New bill aims to keep coastal fireworks shows running

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - A new controversial bill is in the works to keep fireworks shows up and running along the San Diego coast.

Under the bill, introduced by state assemblywoman Diane Harkey, fireworks displays along the coastline would be exempt from coastal development permits, as long as they are done by public agencies.

Local environmental right's groups oppose the measure.

Gonzalez says the bill would not exempt the shows from water pollution permits being developed by the San Diego regional water quality control board.

Under the coastal act, special development permits are needed for fireworks displays near the coast.
