The city of Long Branch, NJ, a stone's throw from Sandy Hook, is contemplating an ordinance against the feeding of all wild birds and feral cats. The ordinance is based on recommendations from the state DEP. I was able to find the state's model ordinance online. At least, I think this is it. It only refers to feeding of animals in public places and any places owned by the municipality, so I'm not sure where the Long Branch folks are getting this from. Although I would love to see a global ban on feeding feral cats, I hope this ordinance doesn't turn into a fiasco that leads to a statewide ban on feeding birds.
