Movie Monguls Seek Incentives

March 19th, 2009 by flanews

Representative from Floridas film industry are asking the state for a tax break. Movie moguls met with Governor Charlie Crist at the capitol Thursday.

Crist is asking the state legislature to approve 10 million dollars in incentives for the industry to attract more movie crews to Florida. More than 200,000 Floridians work in the film industry. State Representative Jennifer Carroll said if the state will give the industry a break, more jobs could be created.

It is important for our legislators to see that if we just give another inch to the film industry with regards to the tax credit that could come about we can create so many miles moving forward for economic stimulus, said Carroll.

While many Republicans are supporting more tax breaks for the film industry, some Democrats are opposing the plan. They say the state needs to look at all revenue sources to fill the states 3.4 billion dollar budget deficit.
