|Please CALL Joint Finance Committee members today to urge their support of the film industry tax incentives!
The Joint Finance Committee will meet in Executive Session on Thursday, April 30, beginning at 11 am in Room 412 East of the State Capitol. The Committee will be considering and voting on the improved film industry tax incentives package put forth by Rep. Tamara Grigsby (D-Milwaukee).
TODAY IS THE DAY to ensure that funding for the incentives is included in the 2009-2011 state budget. You can help make this happen by taking action RIGHT NOW. If your legislator is a Joint Finance Committee member – the list is below – please CALL with this message:
“I am a constituent of Sen. /Rep. Smith and I want him/her to support and vote for the improved film industry tax incentives proposal at the April 30 Joint Finance Committee Executive Session. His/her support will help create jobs in the district and across the state, and is greatly appreciated!”
You can tell this message to the staff member who answers the phone; the staff member will ask for your name and address, to make sure you are a constituent.
If each of the 16 members of the Committee receives 10 phone calls today, they will know that there is support in their district and statewide.
