It is the second large legal settlement Iowa has approved in recent months related to the movie program, and others are expected to be finalized soon, Thompson said.
"It was a much better thing for the state for them to not make the movies and for us to pay this amount of money than for us to make the movies and issue $25 million in credits," said Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Thompson, who negotiated the deal for the state. "The reality is, the idea that having people make movies in Iowa under the tax credit program created any kind of real economic benefit was just not true."
