As we recently reported, H.62 and H.3978 have been "ordered to study" by the Revenue Committee. While this is good news, we will need to advocate through the House and Senate budget process to ensure that threats to the film and television incentive program do not gain traction and pass. In the past the state budget is the process where opponents of the program have tried to repeal and amend it. 
The House is scheduled to release their budget on Wednesday, April 13th. The Senate will release their budget in mid-May. As occurred last year, we anticipate there will be proposals to eliminate or change the incentive during the Senate budget process. This makes the timing of the May 9th Films = Jobs Advocacy Day all the more significant.
