Hollywood Productions More Affordable In Indiana

Last updated on Friday, February 15, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Film production companies will get an expanded tax break for shooting in Indiana after all.

The General Assembly has overridden Governor Daniels' veto of a bill increasing tax credits for film and TV projects. 29 states have similar tax breaks.

Bloomington Senator Vi Simpson says when Louisiana passed its tax credit, the revenue it earned from film production jumped 30-fold in four years.
