Fully Fund Films
Maryland has put up $6 million in incentive money for film and television projects. This is bad news for Utah because: The legislature considers our incentive fund of $3 million as frivolous and is ready to raid it to fund other projects. The legislature should fully fund HB 17 for the simple reason that it is guaranteed to immediately bring in high paying jobs and plenty of deep pockets. Really, we should actually be looking at more than the $3 million considering we are competing with the rest of the planet on this.
