PSATS is working to build legislative support for legal advertising reform and we need your help! PSATS supports legislation that would provide additional options for legal advertising, including placing ads on township websites and in shoppers. We are collecting your stories of how much it costs your township to place a legal advertisement and how much you spend annually on legal ads. Have you recently experienced a newspaper closing or were unable to publish a needed print advertisement due to unforeseen circumstances and, if so, what did you do to deal with the situation? Is a newspaper of general circulation available for delivery in your township or must the newspaper deliver via U.S. mail? How long in advance must advertisements be submitted before publication? Is your submission local or out of town or state?
Any information that you can share would be appreciated, including subscription and readership data. Please send your input to Katie Lizza, PSATS Policy & Research Analyst, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (717) 763-0930, ext. 126. Any documentation is appreciated, but we are particularly looking for information that is new since May 2022. Thank you for your help!
