'Snookiville Law'? The proposed law would let towns license and regulate the filming of reality television shows and require the shows to pay for additional police officers. Ronald Dancer, an Ocean County Republican, introduced the legislation for the "Snookiville Law."

A bill introduced on Monday would give towns where reality TV shows are being filmed more control over The Situation. (Not to mention Snooki and JWoww, too.)

State Assemblyman Ronald Dancer, an Ocean County Republican, introduced the legislation for the "Snookiville" Law, which would let towns license and regulate the filming of reality television shows and impose conditions including requiring TV crews to pay for additional police officers needed to assure public safety.

Dancer said in a statement that New Jersey has a tradition of being a desirable setting for reality shows such as The Situation, Snooki and JWoww's "Jersey Shore," ''The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and "Cake Boss."
