This Just in on the Massachusetts Film Tax Credits:

Dear filmmakers,

The Massachusetts Joint Committee on Revenue voted today, March 11 in a 10:30 a.m. executive session that House Bill 3854, filed by State Representative Steven D'Amico should be reported out of committee unfavorably with a vote of 7 to 1. This means that the Committee will issue a report recommending that the bill "ought not to pass" and will remain in the Clerk's Office. As a result, it is highly unlikely that it will reach the House or Senate. Thanks go out to all of our members who attended last week's Revenue hearing in strong support of the state's Film and TV Tax Credit. Your voice matters!

Congratulations to everyone that turned out in support of keeping the credits intact. Hopefully Rhode Island follows suit.
