2009 Senate Bill 796: Increase state film subsidy transparency

Passed 37 to 0 in the Senate on December 17, 2009.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To increase the disclosure requirements on state film subsidies. The Film Office would have to post quarterly reports on the internet that disclose how much each film producer plans to spend in Michigan, how much was actually spent, details on the shooting locations and jobs, and how many on the payroll were paid more than $250,000; it would also have to report to the legislature how much of all the credits granted were actually cash subsidies, because they exceeded the amount of tax the producer owed. Under a film subsidy law law passed in 2008, Michigan pays 40 or 42 percent of the expenses incurred by film producers in this state.
