Legislative Update: HB 696 - Film Friendly Legislation
 
Today the Louisiana House of Representatives amended HB 696 to a version that is acceptable by LFEA and will be moving on to the Senate. This version would remove any caps from the program and the across the board 10% cut.
 
Great job contacting your legislators. Your actions resulted in this major improvement to the bill!
 
THANK THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

HB 696 by Rep. Montoucet was amended today on the House floor and it includes language that would be detrimental to the film industry.

The key provisions that would do harm are:

  • $3 million above the line cap per person, per state-certified production for each employee reported on a W2 form.
  • Reduction of the value of the credit by 10% after July 1, 2013.

Please contact members of the House of Representatives and urge them to vote NO on HB 696. Explain to them caps are bad for the industry.
