NFA Gives Explosive Testimony Before the CPSC 3/09/18
Yesterday, NFA participated in a meeting with CPSC about the proposed ban on metals in the burst charges of aerial fireworks. Here is a link to a video of that meeting: https://youtu.be/xQvlPDD0I-s.
NFA is opposed to the proposed ban on metals in the burst charges of consumer aerial fireworks because it doesn’t improve safety and because it will place a heavy burden on many businesses. Three speakers participated for NFA during two panel discussions:
· NFA’s Secretary Steve Houser spoke on the first panel about the burden of the proposed rule (13:48).
· NFA’s outside counsel Spencer Elg spoke on the second panel about the proposed rule’s failure to improve safety (2:29:54).
· NFA’s scientific expert Roger Schneider spoke on the second panel about scientific problems with the proposed rule. (2:09:32).
If you would like to add your own comments to the public record, you have until March 14 to email them to CPSC at email@example.com with “Fireworks NPR; Oral Presentation” in the subject line.
