Insane: California gives $330M a year to Hollywood

Do California’s taxpayers know that they’re subsidizing America-hating, anti-Second Amendment, pro-abortion, corrupt and debauched Hollywood to the tune of $330 million a year?

Matthew Blake reports for Los Angeles Business Journal that on April 17, 2018, a bill to extend California’s motion picture tax credit program sailed through a state Assembly committee without opposition.

Assembly Bill 1734 will lengthen by five years California’s $330-million-a-year film and television tax credit program. The policy is due to sunset at the end of 2019. The State Assembly’s Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism and Internet Media Committee also approved without opposition Assembly Bill 2936, which is a virtually identical measure to continue the credits.

In 2004, the California legislature passed an increase of the state’s tax credit program for movies and television shows from $100 million to $330 million a year.

Under AB 1734, television shows and movies that shoot in California net a 20% to 25% refund on crew member wages, plus production and editing costs. More than 90% of shoots that use the credit take place in Los Angeles County.

The California Chamber of Commerce and various labor unions attended the committee hearing to shower praise on tax credits, claiming that the tax credits generated billions of dollars in spending including crew wages.

  2. That’s a lot of money that could be spent on the major homelessness in that state. Hollyweird must be so proud of themselves…

  7. The one nice thing about California is that, no matter how badly you criticize them, it isn’t sufficient. It’s a cosmic joke. It’s a grossly overpriced Third-World country. Nice that they lavish their filthy lucre on the rich.

  8. As if this isn’t bad enough (what do they do with all that cash anyway? One wonders how much of that funds sex trade & trafficking, as well as drug cartels/gangs and the terrorist GBLT etc. movement, and other terrorist orgs operating int he open in the U.S. at present.) there is also this: http://yournewswire.com/california-brown-ban-bibles/ Not sure how valid this is as yet, but I figured it merited a mention here. If it is legitimate, then it seems to declare anti-christian intent on the part of the state of california (for isn’t the governor the voice of the state, supposedly?) Not that it would be surprising, obviously it is a state geared towards that privately, but for them to be this overt about it demonstrates that they think its a safe environment in the U.S. now to openly voice hatred?

    • Also just learned that jerry brown, california’s governor was also friends with jim jones. One wonders if the oregon bisexual & agenda-pushing governoress is related (they are both “browns”.) and what else they might be up to.

    Just part of the pork barrel spending that goes along with those liberals that needs to be cut up and sold as bacon to Hollyweed.

  10. This is precisely what I mean when I say, if the sponsors didn’t pay a dime for TV the Government would pay for it. It is all part of their mind control arsenal. So they spin garbage, it doesn’t sell, and they take our money anyway.

    None of this will stand scrutiny. That’s why they like to keep things in chaos.
