BILL NUMBER:S3229

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to advertising on the exterior
sides of school buses

PURPOSE:
This legislation would allow boards of educations to enter
into contracts for the sale or lease of advertising on the exterior
sides of school buses owned or leased by the school district.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill would allow
boards of educations to enter into contracts for the sale or lease of
advertising on the exterior sides of school buses owned or leased by
the school district. Further this legislation states that certain ads
shall be prohibited, and gives the commissioner the ability to deem
certain products or services as inappropriate to be advertises. This
legislation states further that all advertisements shall require the
prior approval of the local board of education.
Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
At a time when our School Districts are facing
unprecedented cuts in education funding we need to look at
alternative means for bringing in revenues. Some states, including
New Jersey have enacted laws allowing school districts to sell
advertisement space on school buses. Selling or leasing advertising
space is a creative way to allow school districts to raise revenue to
support important scholastic activities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day.
