CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia’s Senate says it’s not a nuisance for firefighters to pass their empty boots or buckets in traffic to raise money.

The Senate has voted unanimously for legislation that also says it’s neither an obstruction nor a nuisance for school-sponsored groups or bona vide charitable organizations to solicit money in roadways.

However, the legislation says it must be done during daylight at an intersection with traffic controls that requires all vehicles stop, or else at a location approved by local police.

It amends state law prohibiting obstructions in public roads.

Passed 33-0, it now goes to the House.
