The use of tax credits to lure production of the Netflix series "House of Cards" to Maryland has renewed a nationwide debate among lawmakers over the benefits of offering high-dollar incentives to encourage Hollywood to come to them.
"That's the economics of today's Hollywood," Mr. Gerbes said.
"When a film comes in here, they hire and they generate lots of revenue for Maryland businesses," said Jack Gerbes, head of the Maryland Film Office. "A lot of these are small Maryland businesses. Sure, there are national hotel chains or car rentals, but we got a lot of support letters from small mom-and-pop business who basically said that without the incentives, they would no longer be in business."
