Monday, June 24, 2013::Uncap the film tax credit

Southwestern Pennsylvania has a long and rich history in the film business and it's well past time that we are given the resources needed to develop an industry that will work for all of Pennsylvania's economy. Recently, Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi introduced legislation to uncap Pennsylvania's Film Tax Credit Program. This is precisely the right tool at the right time to open the film industry in our region to unlimited potential, creating countless jobs and bringing millions of dollars to businesses in our region.
