Last FIN Hearing on Film Bill on Thursday, 3/30

The House Finance Committee (FIN) will hear SB2570, SD2, HD1 (15-20% production tax credit) this Thursday, 3/30. This is the only remaining production tax credit bill this session. The companion bill, HB3080, was not scheduled to be heard, probably because this Senate bill is nearly identical to it. This will be the last committee hearing on this bill before it goes into conference committee, which means members from both legislative bodies will vet the bill together (that is, if it makes it out of this FIN hearing first).

Hearing and testimony submission details below:

Date: Thursday, March 30, 2006
Time: 5:45pm
Place: Conference Room 308, State Capitol
