Arizona has a $2 billion budget deficit. Needless to say, tax dollars are at a premium. So why did the Senate just vote to subsidize movie producers? No idea. How many jobs did the old film tax credit produce in 2008 – 2009? Forty-one (41). And according to the Dept. of Commerce, those jobs ceased to exist after just one year. So far, the state has spent $10 million on movie-makers. What a program.
The House needs to kill the needless, senseless, (jobless) program.
