New Jersey is set to ban the sale of online advertising online and mobile.
The New Jersey Board of Elections on Thursday voted to adopt an online advertising policy that will come into effect on July 1.
Under the new rules, the state will require all online advertisers to submit their advertising plans for approval.
Online advertising will be banned for businesses that have fewer than 15 employees.
Businesses will be able to apply for approval from any business with 15 employees or less.
A person could not advertise on a website for more than one business in the same calendar month.
The ban applies to both mobile and fixed-line advertising.
Fixed-line ads can only be placed on fixed-lines or mobile devices, and fixed lines cannot be used to buy mobile apps.
Mobile ads can be placed by a mobile device.
Advertising companies could face fines of up to $1,000 and be required to post notices that the policy is in place.
The Board of Governors is also considering a law that would allow the use of electronic devices and other devices in the primary or voting place to conduct political advertisements.
The bill has not yet been introduced, but it is likely to be passed before the end of the year.
The move comes after an extensive investigation into the use and impact of political advertising online in New Jersey.
In December, the State Auditor’s Office said it found that New Jersey had the worst online advertising practices in the nation.
In an interview with NJ.com in March, Attorney General Christopher Porrino said he believed the online advertising rules could be a model for other states.
