A bill that attempts to lure film and television productions back to California through tax breaks has cleared the Assembly. Assemblyman Mike Gatto says his bill would help protect a signature state industry that employs a lot of Californians.
“The motion picture industry brings a whole lot of surprising and attractive direct and indirect to the communities all of us represent and of course to California as a whole,” says Gatto.
Gatto’s bill passed with largely bi-partisan support.
The Assembly passed another bill that would clear the criminal records of human trafficking victims arrested for prostitution.
On the Senate side, a bill that would equalize penalties for crack versus powder cocaine convictions also passed.
