Legislation To Incentivize Film Industry Considered In Missouri House
Legislation designed to incentivize the TV and film industry to bring projects to the Show-Me State is being considered by a Missouri House committee. Representative Brian Seitz, a Republican from Branson, is the sponsor of the bill.
Seitz says that Missouri does not incentivize the industry to come to the state, citing how Tulsa King, starring Sylvester Stallone, was originally called Kansas City. Jeremy Cady with Americans For Prosperity opposes the bill, questioning if these tax credits can be better spent elsewhere in Missouri like on infrastructure. Under the bill, the state would provide up to 20-million in tax credits annually.
