As an actress in California who moved to this great state to thrive as an ACTRESS. I invested my morning writing numerous letters to Senator Knight, Senator Beall, Senator DeSaulnier, Senator Hernandez, Senator Liu, Senator Wolk, Senator Walters, Staff Director, Colin Grinnell and Republican Consultant, Scott Chavez in support of Assembly Bill 1839, to expand the current CA Film and Television Tax Credit program.
The entertainment industry is a vital part of California’s economy. Over 500,000 jobs and more than 50,000 California small businesses depend on a thriving film and television production industry. But with the pressure of incentive programs in other states and countries, California’s share of the top grossing feature film market has slipped from 68% to just 8%. Production of one-hour television shows has also left the state – dropping from 64% to 28% over the past 8 years.
AB 1839 invests in California’s future economy, and would help return our state to its rightful place as the home of the entertainment industry.
Please consider writing your own letter today or emailing one or two in support. Thank you in advance for any letter you write or email you send! I have listed the email addresses below:
