Proposed Ban On Novelty Lighters Could Be Signed Into Law

State lawmakers say a proposed ban on novelty lighters could be signed into law this week.

The lighters are shaped like cartoon characters, some even play music or shine lights.

News10NBC reported in January that lawmakers were concerned about children getting their hands on the lighters, hurting themselves or damaging their home.

If passed, collectable lighters made before 1980 would be exempt from the ban. The state would also set up a hotline to report any violations.

Governor Cuomo is reviewing the legislation before signing it.
