Novelty Lighters Banned in Yakima County

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Just months after the City of Yakima passed an ordinance banning novelty lighters, Yakima County officials have taken the same step.

On Tuesday, Yakima County Commissioners voted to approve an ordinance banning the lighters.

The county held a public hearing on February 19th and no one spoke in favor of keeping the lighters.

The ordinance will go into effect in 90 days.
