It's not the Bat Signal, but it's close.
A new bill aimed at attracting more movies and TV series to Illinois passed both the state House and Senate on Thursday. The measure approves a 30 percent tax incentive, which supporters say directly competes with Michigan's film tax rebate of 42 percent. The new measure does not expire, leaving the door open for TV series to schedule long productions in the state.
