Ocean County Assemblyman Ronald Dancer is introducing the “Snookiville Law” in order to control the chaos that comes with filming a reality show within a city.
According to The Clicker, the law would allow towns to impose fees on producers for filming a reality series like The Jersey Shore – in order to offset the costs of police officers that are needed to keep security around the television crews.
Apparently, it’s costing cities a pretty penny to keep rabid fans at bay when they spot one of their favorite reality stars out for a stroll or hitting the gym – and those cities want some reimbursement.
This is a really good start, it is about time the government starts getting paid for the free service it provides for celebrities.
But will this law pass? Time will tell.
One more question, of all celebs why Snooki? Is she really that much of a trouble for the state officials?
