We have a gatling gun staring at our entire body because the California Senate has amended AB1069 ( the bill to extend the California Jobs (Film) and Tax Credit Program another 3 years.

Here is where it stands:

We have until September 9th to get calls and letters to the California Senate, and here is why:

Instead of extending the California Jobs (Tax) Credit Program another 3 years the Senate wants to amend the program and only give us ONE MORE YEAR AND THAT IS WITH ECONOMIC TRIGGERS THAT WE WILL NEVER MEET!

RE: Assembly Bill 1069

Dear Senator Steinberg,

I work in the motion picture and television industry. I have seen a huge reduction in my work and do not want to move out of California. I love my state and hope that the California legislators understand the impact that losing our indigenous industry has created tremendous hardship for hundreds of thousands of Californians. Our working families have held well-paying jobs for more than 100 years, raised generations of well-educated children and created ancillary business that support the tax base.

Please vote to extend AB 1069, the California Film Tax Incentive for another 3 years.

Sincerely,

PS: I already spend most of the year working in other states.

If this bill does not get the 3 year extension that it deserves, than I might be forced to permanently move out of California.
