South Jersey senators support advertising on Department of Transportation vehicles

    Two South Jersey senators have sponsored a bill that would allow advertising on Department of Transportation vehicles.

    Senators Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) and Jim Beach (D-Camden) support legislation that would allow advertising on state roadway patrol vehicles to pay for services through private funding, as the Gloucester County Times reports.

    The revenue would replace additional taxes or tolls, and is meant to offset safety and emergency service costs. The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee has approved the measure.
