ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York school districts are missing out on millions of dollars by banning advertising, according to a new report out Tuesday.
The Empire Center for Public Policy says antiquated legal restrictions are blocking schools from seeking non-taxpayer revenue by selling advertising and naming rights on their properties.
The non-profit "think tank" cited the use of advertising by schools in Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania as a way for districts to raise money without raising taxes.
