Small towns across America could be without fireworks this Fourth of July if federal agencies cant settle on new homeland security restrictions on shipments by train.

Because of uncertainty over how to comply with the governments anti-terror laws, railways have refused to handle fireworks since early this year, cutting off the main method of transport for shipments arriving at West Coast ports from China and other Asian countries. On May 5, the government issued regulations on fireworks transport by air, water and truck but has yet to decide on new guidelines for trains.
