School bus media

    A bill approved by the New Jersey legislature could soon allow state school districts to sell advertising on school buses.

     

    Bill A-1637 awaits approval from Gov. Chris Christie, but would allow the districts to sell ads on the side of buses it owns and leases.

    The Glouster County Times reports the ad revenue would be split in half to cover fuel costs and district programs. All ads must be approved by the Commissioner of Education. We don’t want the kiddies drinking Dos Equis, right?
