Production Incentive Program Removed From HB 2150

HB 2150 is the House Bill that reforms the business and occupation tax to provide fairness and administrative stability, and in the process eliminates several tax incentive programs.

We are pleased to announce that the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program (MPCP) has been removed from the bill. It is no longer at risk of being eliminated at this time.

We thank every constituent in the 36th district who contacted Representative Reuven Carlyle (D-36) about the importance of the MPCP.

Additionally, we thank Representative Carlyle for his leadership and for hearing the bill in the House Finance committee this morning that omits the MPCP. If you live in the 36th district, please reach out and thank him for his tremendous effort and support.
