ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- A New Jersey lawmaker wants towns to have a say in the filming of reality TV shows within their boundaries before a Situation develops.

Ocean County Republican Assemblyman Ronald Dancer on Monday introduced legislation for a Snookiville Law. The law would let towns impose conditions including requiring TV crews to pay for additional police officers to assure public safety during filming.

Dancer named the bill after "Jersey Shore" cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, whose show with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and others recently ended its three-year run in Seaside Heights.

The MTV show's cast members were involved in scuffles and drunken public displays. Police officers routinely were assigned to areas where filming occurred.

Snooki and co-star Jennifer "JWoww" Farley have been filming a spinoff series in nearby Manchester. Authorities there have reported no problems.

MTV has no comment.
