California Preps Bill to Give Tax Breaks to Studios that Boycott States with Strict Abortion Laws

Legislating with their ‘Feels’.


A Democratic lawmaker in California has proposed a bill that would give tax breaks to Hollywood studios that refuse to film in states that have recently enacted stricter abortion laws.

Assembly Bill 1442 would allow tax breaks from January 2020 for companies that refuse to film in states with “pending legislation or existing law that prohibits access to, criminalizes the provision of, or otherwise restricts a woman’s access to abortion services after 6 weeks from the beginning of the pregnancy or earlier.”
“There are actors and actresses that are refusing to be part of a production in one of those states,” Democratic Assemblywoman Luz Rivas, who is sponsoring the proposed legislation, told CNBC. “I think it really puts pressure on the industry to reconsider whether they want to do business in those states.”

The legislation comes amid mounting fury by left-wing politicians and Hollywood activists against a series of bills aimed at restricting abortion law in Republican-controlled states such as Georgia and Alabama. Both of those states already offer their own tax-incentives for production companies filming within the state.

“We’re willing to expand [the program] to other states,” Rivas explained. “But right now we’re highlighting those states with strict abortion bans.”  more here

  1. Citizens of California should be filing suit against their state government for misuse of tax law.

  2. California can reduce their possibilities if they want, there’s no market for most of the garbage they produce anyway. Go ahead and do it just to spite us, we’ll be laughing.

  3. Screw ’em. I’ll continue to boycott Ho-wood and it’s sick movies and tv shows.

    Nobody needs the crap that Ho-wood squeezes out.

  4. They’ve also decided to provide health care to illegals, the american citizens of the state be damned.

  5. It’s been awhile since hollywood produced something worth a shit…

    I think we’ll be fine.

    Not like we’re gonna run out of pedos and need hollywood.

  6. For the tools I sell I think I’ll pass on a 15% discount if the ship to address is to a jurisdiction that is a declared 2nd Amendment Sanctuary.

  7. Okay, open that door. Flyover country can screw California over more than the other way around.

  8. They can’t afford it Trump has already halted the one billion dollars for that train wreck they’re building and has instructed the DOJ to go after the 2.5 billion they already paid because California broke the deal they had. They’re up to their eyes in deficit spending with no end in sight and if Trump finally moves on cutting off law enforcement payments for being a sanctuary state and not enforcing Federal Law then even the 9th circus or some bought off Judge won’t save them from the ensuing riots. LA, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco (along with San Jose) will burn.

  9. I don’t even know what this “Thrones” program was all about, and never had an interest in finding out.

    All I know is that 10.7 million people threatened to take the day off Monday because of it. Mass nausea?

  10. “tax-incentives” my ass. I live in Georgia. It’s not a tax abatement, or a reduction, they are writing the companies a check. With my tax dollars.

    The state is paying these companies to film here and have been for years.

    Screw that!

    I have no problem with an actual tax reduction advantage as an enticement. Hell, make it tax free if you have to. It’s called a “Tax Credit” in our government documents but that “credit” takes the form of a check written by the state. Don’t give them my tax money to come here.
