Since the passing of House Bill 1286 (the new 20% incentive law) on July 1, 2012, the Office of Film, Telvision & Media incentivized over $35 million in production, which created nearly 800 jobs. Here are some highlights from the last three fiscal years:

The JBC will prepare the state budget (the "LONG Bill"), which will go through committees in both the House and the Senate before being voted on by both chambers and then signed into law by the Governor.
