Late last night, Washington Filmworks heard that SB 5539 would be scheduled for a hearing this morning in the House Committee on Community & Economic Development & Housing at 10 am. This committee is chaired by Representative Phyllis Gutierrez Kenney, a sponsor of the original legislation. Washington Filmworks Board Chair, Becky Bogard, and Executive Director, Amy Lillard, are in Olympia this morning to testify on behalf of the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program.
This morning’s hearing is evidence that the bill is moving quickly. This legislative session is scheduled to end March 8th, so there is no time to delay. Please contact your Representatives by telephone or email as soon as possible in support of SB5539.
