House Incentive Bill Update…

[from FilminFlorida] --
HB 1325 will indeed be heard tomorrow (Thursday, April 5) in the Policy and Budget Council of the House of Representatives, its final stop before going to the floor of the House for a final vote.  Meeting is scheduled from 9:00AM to 4:00PM in room 212 of the Knott Building, a wing off of the Capitol buildingin Tallahassee.
The bill will feature a few technical amendments and keep the $75 million total tax credit funding over three years, allocating $25 million per year.  If the total allocated credits exceed the aggregate amount in a year, the excess will be considered as having been applied for in the next fiscal year.  The bill also retains the ability to roll forward any unused tax credits from one year into the next year.
Chairman Dean Cannon will present the bill on behalf of Rep. Don Davis.  The Policy and Budget Council is chaired by Chairman Ray Sansom of Ft. Walton Beach.
