Screen Actors Guild was on hand at Los Angeles City Hall on Tuesday to support legislative measures that will make it easier to film in the city of Los Angeles. The ordinance, drafted by City Councilmember Richard Alarcon will adjust the Entertainment Production cap from $2.5 million to $5 million, potentially allowing a number of production companies tax savings of more than $3,000 a year.
