SACRAMENTO — Sen. Ted Gaines (R-Roseville) today issued the following statement regarding the end of the Lake Tahoe fireworks lawsuit and the continuation of the 4th of July and Labor Day fireworks shows.
“I’m incredibly happy that we were able to find a solution in the community, instead of the courtroom,” said Gaines. “Holiday fireworks are such a critical part of this region and this economy. The second I heard they were under attack I stepped in and worked to keep them alive. I look forward to the biggest and best shows ever this summer.”
The Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority (LTVA) and the plaintiffs reached a settlement that will provide for enhanced oversight and clean-up, allowing for continued fireworks shows and maintaining the quality of Tahoe’s beaches.
Gaines represents the 1st Senate District, which includes all or parts of Alpine, El Dorado, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties.
