New Jersey bill would spare college students a Snooki fee
N.J. Sen. Joe Kyrillos says he’ll sponsor legislation that would allow college students to opt into campus events that require a fee.
Meaning: Students wouldn’t have to pay for Snooki.
The Republican’s announcement comes in response to the $32,000 paid to the Jersey Shore reality TV star to speak about her lifestyle to the campus last week. Snooki was paid $2,000 more than commencement speaker and Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison.
Kyrillos said, according to the Associated Press, students at public colleges shouldn’t be required to pay for entertainment they don’t want through campus activity fees.
