Hosts: Johnny Starr and Ron the Banker

Special Guests: Spencer Elg (Outside Counsel for the NFA)

Dear Friend of Fireworks –

As you know, the National Fireworks Association (NFA) and its leaders have been working hard to defeat a mis-guided and ill-informed rule proposed by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) that would dramatically change the landscape of the consumer fireworks industry.

The most recent CPSC meeting on this topic took place late last month and ended without a decision. It appears that all of the comments and feedback from concerned folks has made a difference. The CPSC essentially decided to kick the can down the road with the intent of gathering some additional information.

In this special edition of The Fireworks Brigade, we speak to Spencer Elg, outside counsel for the NFA. Spencer answers our questions about the latest CPSC decision and what we can do to help. #SAVEOURFIREWORKS

Special thank you to Nancy Blogin and the NFA for helping us connect with Mr. Elg.

To learn more about how to get involved in this effort, just Google search #SAVEOURFIREWORKS or email the NFA at nfasafety@gmail.com and tell them how the CPSCs proposed rule would affect you.

CPSC Acting Chairwoman Ann Marie Buerkle can be reached at (301) 504-7978.
You can also email her at ABUERKLE@CPSC.GOV
