WAY TO GO TEXAS LEGISLATORS!
Let's hear it for those Austin guys in drab suits from the Men's Warehouse! Not only did they kill any creative education financing, they also stripped Texas from offering any cool tax incentives to the filmmaking & television industry! YEE-HAAAW! Each and every state surrounding us has various forms of incentive packages for entertainment production (which by the way brings in tens of millions of dollars to those economies) but Texas is one of the LAST states to offer - nothing. Even the 'tiny' $20mil bill which was submitted would have been a start (no tax on production vehicles rent/lease, hotel rooms and other sales tax incentives would have been an INVESTMENT to TX) ... So, congratulations to the politicians in Austin for accomplishing nothing this session! You guys rock!! Dunnam Honored As Top Legislator
KWTX news: "Rep. Jim Dunnam (D-Waco) helped craft an education plan, which supporters said *would* have added $5.2 billion to Texas public schools while reducing property taxes for most Texans..."ahh... thanks Jim, it's the thought that counts
