TRAVERSE CITY — Only three months old and the Michigan film incentive bill package is drawing considerable attention from the movie industry.
Sen. Jason Allen, R-Traverse City, hosted a hearing on the pros and cons of the 16 bills, which offer the largest tax credits in the country to the film industry, looking for local feedback on the burgeoning program.
“We believe the tax credits will be a net benefit to the state treasury,” said Allen. “Now we are just feeling out what the strengths and weaknesses are for the package as a whole.”
