[quote]But you are wrong that would not balance the state budget as no property tax exists at the state level. [/quote] Correct. THOUGH, maybe locals can get at this a little to make up for inventory tax cuts. Really doubt it, but I like to be an optimist....

LOT of info to digest so these are just first impressions/responses. 1. Cutting inventory tax credit does NOT mean film tax is off the table. It just means they cannot balance the budget with film tax credit reductions. They stated they are OK with film reform. Now those reforms may be, as sad...
