Chamber Requests Film Incentives Bill be scheduled for House Floor Vote
House Bill 2417, a bill aimed at updating and adopting new and more robust incentive structures for the Film and TV industry is stalled in the House Committee on Calendars. Your Chamber is working hard to get the bill to the floor for a House vote. We sent a letter to Committee members yesterday requesting the opportunity for legislators to vote on the bill based on its merits.
Your Chamber has been working collaboratively with local partners and the Metro 8 Chambers of Commerce to inform legislators about how HB 2417 will facilitate business growth opportunities for the State of Texas and for the San Antonio region. Updating and adopting new and more robust incentive structures for the Film and TV industry will generate significant economic growth by creating good paying jobs that will support small, medium, and large sized business growthy, not to mention real infrastructure development, generating tax revenue, and increasing tourism.
