Stam is also one of the main sponsors of HB994, designed to gut the NC film Incentives, and thereby destroying a thriving job and income creator fir the state.
And who or what is E.Brent Lane working for? Where does he get his reseach analysis info? Film and TV projects bring a lot of money into a region. The amount coming in here is greater than what the state pays out. Just look at base figures. Just come see where the money flows, from all the food the caterers use, prop food, set dressing, porta potties, rental vans, cars, trucks, the list goes on and on. And while a film may come and go, the idea is to have continuity. One film leads to another, and another, and another. Wake up NC! Film/TV incentives equals jobs and money!
There are a lot of misconceptions and misdirects on how the incentives work. Why there is a group of politicians that want to ruin a good thing is beyond comprehension. The ripple effect from productions coming to the state is great. Just ask residents of Rose Hill what Iron Man 3 did there. Just think if the politicos would support the NC Film Incentives what a continued impact might happen. Why do they get it in Georgia, but not here??
