From Amy Lillard:
Late last night the legislation to renew the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program was voted out of the House Ways and Means Committee after being amended. Representative Ross Hunter introduced an amendment to to reduce the size of the fund to $1.75M per year (from the proposed $3.5M annually). The bill is scheduled for a a full vote on the House floor today.
We urge you to CALL AND EMAIL your Representatives to ask them to restore the fund to $3.5M per year and to vote in favor of SSB 5539. Please remind your Representatives that the budget that was released this morning and agreed upon by both the Senate and House budget negotiators has the program included at $3.5M per year.
