In a time of major spending cuts, two Republican governors have said they'll spare film-industry tax credits from the budget knife, unlike Republican Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan, whose proposal to ax them scared the film industry away from his state.
"It's jobs, jobs, jobs," Mr. Burnstein said. "I've worked in this industry as a screenwriter since 1989. Everywhere I've gone, where I've seen it done right, it is great for the economy."
He said he is in the process with others of coming up with a proposed measure to amend rather than eliminate the film tax cuts, and he offered two thoughts regarding Mr. Tannenwald's advice that other states follow the governor's proposal.
