Late yesterday,we learned that SB 6027 (the bill to increase funding for the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program) was not included in the final budget. It is our understanding that the only tax preferences that made it into the final budget were those that were expiring and there were no new preferences included. Save the date for a post-legislative events in Seattle (July 9) and Spokane (July 19).
