This morning Washington Filmworks Board members Becky Bogard and Greg Smith, Executive Director Amy Lillard, and Rebecca Johnson of the Washington State Labor Council were in Olympia to testify at a public hearing in the House Ways & Means Committee.
Approximately 30 film industry professionals attended in support of the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program (E2SSB 5539) and were acknowledged at the start of testimony. Thank you to the film community for your time this morning. It was a long drive for such a limited opportunity to share our story. Please know your presence made a difference. We are blown away!
If you were unable to join us this morning video is now available online at TVW. Testimony and questions about E2SSB 5539 begin at 7:00 min and end at 26:20. We are waiting to hear if Ways & Means will reconvene this evening for an Executive Session.
Please stay tuned to the blog and facebook page for updates as we know more.
