Missouri Legislative Day 2011 is Tuesday, February 1st in Jefferson City, MO.
All MOMMA members and anyone who works in the Missouri motion media production community are invited to attend this event.â€¨ â€¨We need production community members from all regions in Missouri to attend.â€¨ â€¨Our primary goal is to sustain the current Film ProductionTax Incentive of 4.5 million, and not have it transferred to another industry as recently recommended by the Governorâ€™s Tax Incentive Task Force.â€¨
â€¨IT HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT TO SHOW UP AND MEET LEGISLATORS WHO WILL TAKE UP THE TAX INCENTIVE DEBATE IN THE 2011 SESSION.â€¨
