2011 Senate Bill 5539: Concerning Washington's motion picture competitiveness

Passed 40 to 8 in the Senate (see names) on February 14, 2012 Expands the approved Motion Picture Competitiveness Program's sole purpose to include assisting and providing services for attracting the film industry. The definition of "motion picture" is changed. The provision allowing the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program funding to be used for a tax credit marketer to market the tax credits is removed. This act contains provisions designed to promote the use of in-state labor in motion pictures and episodic shows. The program may annually allocate up to 10 percent of the qualifying program contributions to provide funding support for filmmakers who are Washington residents, new forms of production, and emerging technologies. One member representing Washington interactive media or the emerging motion picture industry is added to the board. The annual calendar year credit limit is $3.5 million. The Motion Picture Competitiveness Program must develop a survey designed to acquire data to allow the state to better measure the effectiveness of the program and to provide transparency of the program. This act alters certain deadlines.
