“The higher rebate will now make us more attractive to the studios and networks and more competitive with other states and countries,” said Marshall Moore, director of the Utah Film Commission.
"The Motion Picture Association of Utah is gratified by the passage of HB99,” said Don Schain, President of the Motion Picture Association of Utah. “This bill represents a major step forward in the continuing development of a fair and sustainable Motion Picture Incentive. It has long been the MPAU's position that our incentive works because it keeps our industry competitive while providing the State of Utah an attractive return on investment. In these difficult economic times, we are pleased that the Legislature recognized that Film and Television are part of the solution."
