Missoula County's tracking mechanism for legislation proposed at the 64th session of the Montana Legislature.
Sent to Missoula County Senators:Missoula County opposes Senate Bill 44 - Authorize county regulation of fireworks, on the Senate floor this afternoon. While we appreciate the effort to give counties another tool in protecting public safety, Missoula County's ability to enforce fireworks restrictions is severely limited and offering that tool places the County in a difficult position. The criteria for declaring Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are clear, whereas the lack of criteria in determining "that a fire hazard exists" complicates the County's position even further. Please oppose SB 44.Respectfully,Vickie Zeier on behalf of the Missoula County Commissioners
