Dear Arizona Taxpayer–
Like the zombies in bad horror movies, the film industry keeps coming back and keeps trying to get the Arizona Legislature to give the industry subsidies paid for with your tax dollars.
This year, the film zombies are trying once again to raise their taxpayer-funded subsidies from the grave. In a zombie sneak attack, they have attached the bill as a strike-all amendment (“striker”) to another bill, HB 2127.
On March 14, AFP-Arizona and our allies kept the striker from being heard in the Senate Commerce Committee, but the zombies have risen again from the muck! Tomorrow (Tuesday, March 20, at 10:00 am), the zombies will try to push their striker to HB 2127 through the Senate Appropriations Committee.
The Dems on the committee appear to be in favor of the corporate-welfare handout to the film industry. But to pass the bill out of committee, the zombies will need to pick up several Repub votes. The following Senators are under a lot of pressure from the industry to vote for the striker. Please send them quick emails to encourage them to hold the line against the zombie movie subsidy.
