A new clip from WBRZ discusses costly film tax credits and its return on investment.
Here is an excerpt:
The director of the Louisiana Budget Project, Jan Moller, says while the state has been cutting money from health care and education, it’s also been spending more to subsidize the film industry.
“It’s a question of priorities and we think it’s probably time to start reigning in the cost of these subsidies,” said Moller. “The question is not whether we want the film industry here, the real question is what are we willing to pay to bring them here?”
