While the “Joint Committee on Tax Credits” decided to move forward with a bill to fund the film incentive at $6million per year. Today, at this moment, there are discussions to fund the remaining $1.5 million being sought, or more, that would be required for Oregon to retain a 5th season of “Leverage” in Oregon.
To increase the chances of this happening, respectful phone calls to Representatives Hannah and Roblan from industry members reminding them of the value of JOBS in Oregon could make this a reality for us. It doesn’t have to take more than 2 minutes, and it will go a very long way towards insuring that we continue on the track of job growth in the Oregon film & television industry.
Here’s how you can help:
1) Call the two reps below with this script:
My name is —-, I work as a —-. I wanted to let the speaker know that the Film and TV Production industry is still hoping to achieve $7.5 million per year in incentives so we can keep our jobs.
2) Tell a friend to do the same.
