2014 Senate Bill 1103: Revise film producer subsidy formula

Passed 32 to 4 in the Senate on October 22, 2014.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To eliminate a 2017 sunset on the law authorizing state subsidies for film productions, and make various changes to the formula used to calculate a particular producer's subsidy. Among other things, the bill would remove limitations on giving larger subsidies that are based on very high compensation paid to well-known actors, directors, etc. which could have the effect of allowing particular productions to claim a larger share of the total subsidy budget. Legislators previously authorized redistributing $50 million in state tax revenues to film producers through these subsidies in the current fiscal year. The Senate added a floor amendment that appears to give larger subsidies to films that use the Motown Motion Picture facility in Detroit for post-production work.
