Budget Impasse in Annapolis Threatens Thriving Local TV Industry

Scott Johnson was quoted in this article by The Baltimore Sun on Senate Bill 1066, which would raise the amount of money available for Maryland tax credits to Hollywood filmmakers from $7.5 million to $22.5 million a year — and would extend the tax credit program to 2016.
"The production incentive program Maryland enacted last year was an instant success, attracting world-class projects," says E. Scott Johnson, chair of the Maryland Film Industry Coalition. But he says projects "will almost certainly leave Maryland for subsequent seasons" unless the new incentives are approved.
