The St. Clair School District can place advertising signs within its baseball field perimeter.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the new law April 6. It is effective April 7, 2010.
Rep. Tony Cornish (R-Good Thunder), who sponsors the law with Sen. Julie Rosen (R-Fairmont), said that the law is “meant to be a fix between two conflicting state statutes.” One permits school districts to collect revenue from outdoor ads, such as billboards placed on school property; the other permits advertising only within 100 feet of a school.
The new law allows the ads within the baseball field area and requires signs to be visible only to those inside the stadium area.
