Chris Christie signs law inspired by Jersey Shore's Snooki https://t.co/FLnRQSNbaF— TIME (@TIME) May 9, 2017
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie yesterday signed the “Snooki Law,” inspired by the Jersey Shore alum.
It bans public speakers, including Snooki, from earning more than 10-grand per engagement.
Snooki inspired the law. A state Assemblyman discovered for one of her appearances Rutgers University paid Snooki $32,000 of taxpayers’ money. Many lawmakers were outraged that Snooki earned more than graduation speaker, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison.
However, Bruce Springsteen’s guitarist Steven Van Zandt has been grandfathered. This weekend at Rutgers’s graduation, Little Steven can still take home $35,000.
