Jon Schuller: Like a bad movie

September 8, 2013 

A bad movie

The narrow-minders in Raleigh have struck again. Tax incentives for filmmakers that helped bring in jobs and nearly $300 million in spending in North Carolina will expire by the end of 2013.

Major movies and television productions were welcomed here to create a new industry outside of the traditional locations we’re used to. Again, we have a group of legislators at the state capital who want only their constricted agenda to be in place regardless of negative consequences for businesses and residents.

What I want answered is where are all these so-called “savings” going to? Who decides that cutting back budget requirements in one area makes another one better or worse?
