My friend Aaron Kleiber who is a local actor and comedic entertainer brought to my attention the possible decision of Cutting The PA Arts Budget & Film Tax Break. So far this current Tax Break has really helped to bring more movies and film making productions to Pittsburgh which has helped to employ local actors, actresses, and film crew professionals. It has also helped to put Pittsburgh on the map of being the small city with big city film making potential.
Below is contact information to email the following Senators to reject the idea of cutting the Tax Break for filmmakers in Pennsylvania and the cutting of funds for arts programs in general. To save the PA Tax Credit program, it is going to take a tremendous amount of effort from every person and every business that is impacted by the film industry. Please send this to your contacts, your friends, relatives and anyone else you can enlist to help ensure the continuation of a very successful program.
