Bill Proposed To Limit Governor Promo Ads
Senator Joseph Kyrillos, R-Monmouth has sponsored legislation in the state Senate that would restrict the governor's appearance in New Jersey advertisements or promotions. The bill would limit a governor’s appearance in ads to those that serve essential and legitimate public purposes. The measure would also create an independent five-member commission to authorize such appearances by the governor. Former Gov.McGreevey spent well over $40 million of taxpayer's money on ads that seemed to many as political advertisements designed to prop up his approval ratings.
