Law Named After Snooki Could Make Reality at the Shore Difficult
We had “Jersey Shore” overload this summer between the crew taping the final season and Snooki and JWoww hanging in Manchester. However, a new bill was introduced today that could make reality television in Monmouth and Ocean counties a thing of the past.
Today, Assemblyman Ronald Dancer of Ocean county introduced a bill that would give local officials more power to regulate reality shows, like the “Jersey Shore.” The proposed bill is called the “Snookiville Law.” If passed, it would allow towns to adopt licensing ordinances and charge production companies more if additional police are needed, for example.
Mr. Dancer said:
The popularity of MTV’s Jersey Shore and other reality shows can attract crowds to a community. That can be great for local businesses and a costly challenge to a town’s ability to control crowds and protect public safety. This will help local officials make sure that the attention reality stars like Snooki and JWoww bring to their town benefits local residents and businesses.
The final season of Jersey Shore begins October 4th.
