Hollywood studios look to Governor Moonbeam for tax breaks

  • California Governor Jerry Brown has yet to weigh in on if he will sign a $1.6B incentive plan to keep movie and TV production in California.
  • The four-year initiative has passed legislative obstacles as state lawmakers look to compete with packages being offered Hollywood studios (LGF, SNE, VIA, CMCSA, DIS) by New York and Louisiana.
  • Brown is expected to try to clip the total down from $1.6B.

    Progressives like higher taxes, they should get a tax surcharge, not tax breaks.

    Certain irony in the Leftists subscribing to capitalistic principles such as lower taxes leading to economic growth. See why it upsets people such as the large horned bull?, or possibly goat, above by the username of Left Banker, which is in and of itself an oxymoron. You can't operate a bank on hope.

    My objection is the "Gov Moonbeam" tag is sooooo 20th century. That was Jerry Then. Jerry Now is anything but.

     

    Fun Fact. Jerry Brown holds the record for being the youngest governor in California history.
