A New Jersey legislator, Ocean County Assemblyman Ronald Dancer has introduced a bill that would allow towns to have a tighter rein over reality shows shooting within their borders and determine whether producers should chip in to cover law-enforcement costs. He's calling it the Snookiville Law.
Among its provisions, the law would enable towns to impose fees on reality-show producers to help cover the costs of beefing up public-safety measures, including hiring additional police officers for shoots. http://www.eonline.com/news/348597/snooki-law-enforcer-jersey-politico-lobbying-for-snookiville-law-allowing-towns-to-regulate-reality-tv-shoots
What do you think? It makes sense to me.. I don't live in a town where reality shows are filmed, but if I did, I'd balk at having to foot the bill for additional public safety while the network takes in the profits.
