A New "Snooki Law" Could Protect N.J. Towns From Reality Shows

A New Jersey lawmaker has introduced a new bill dubbed the 'Snookiville Law' that would protect cities in the Garden State from reality shows like Jersey Shore, Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Cake Boss.

If passed, the 'Snookiville Law' will not forbid towns from allowing reality shows to film, but it will allow community leaders to tighten the reigns, according to reports.

The law was named after Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the most famous cast member of MTV's Jersey Shore. The bill proposes to give cities and towns greater authority over reality shows including mandating that producers cover expenses for extra law enforcement needed to ensure public safety.

"These shows can attract crowds, which can benefit local businesses and challenge a community's resources," said Republican State Assemblyman Ronald Dancer who introduced the bill.

"This bill will permit local officials to make sure taxpayers don't get 'Snook'-ered or public safety is compromised when reality stars such as Snooki or J-Woww come to town."

'Snook'-ered! Ha!
Jersey Shore has no plans to return to Seaside Heights now that MTV has cancelled the series. The final season will air on MTV on October 4.
