There have been changes to fireworks sales in Nebraska that will go into effect this year. A new bill was passed that allows for the sale of fireworks labeled as 1.4G explosives and allows some items that were previously prohibited in Nebraska.

However, the flying lantern-type devices, often called Sky Lanterns, are still prohibited for sale, possession, and use in Nebraska.
