The House Local Government Committee is scheduled to consider HB 955, legal advertising reform, this Wednesday. HB 955 would give municipalities the option of placing public notices on their own website or a shopper and would expand the types of newspapers that could be used for legal advertisements, in addition to a newspaper of general circulation. PSATS supports this bill, which would fulfill a PSATS resolution.
To help PSATS build the case for legal advertising reform, we need your help! We are collecting examples of how much it currently costs your township for a legal advertisement and how long in advance advertisements must be submitted before publication. We are also looking for examples of townships that don’t currently have a newspaper of general circulation available in your township. Please send your input to Holly Fishel, PSATS Policy & Research Director, at email@example.com or call 717-763-0930, ext. 138. Any documentation of expenses is much appreciated! Please send by Monday, June 6!
