Update from Mary Anne McCollum / MOMMA Legislative Committee: April 11, 2011:
In the Governor’s FY 2012 budget proposal, funding for the film office was eliminated. Â As the budget moved thru the House, $200,000 was added to keep the office, and approved by the full House. Â The budget bills are now under consideration by the Senate Appropriations Committee and should be voted on this week, hopefully with the money still included. Â The next step is consideration by the full Senate, and that could happen as early as next week. That is why your attendance at Legislative Day is so important.
