California's production tax credit program has a current annual allocation of $330 million — which was tripled in size in 2014 to compete effectively with New York and Georgia, then extended a year ago to 2025 with a credit of up to 25% of qualified expenditures spent in California.
A proposed California tax credit to attract productions that leave a state that's implementing fetal heartbeat anti-abortion legislation has cleared a key hurdle in the State Senate.
“AB 1442 brings back middle-class jobs to California," Rivas said. "It reinforces that California values women and it helps keep children living with their parents 12 months out of the year, ensuring there are no more long separations while parents have to go to other states for work."” />
“In California, we believe women are valued and have a basic moral right to control their own body,” said Rivas. As these attacks on women take place, AB 1442 provides the film industry an opportunity to stand with women and share our values while bringing critical jobs back to the state.” “The same states that have systematically lured film productions from California are continuing their historical assaults on women’s rights.
Citing studies, Rivas said a $250 million investment in approved productions would generate nearly $1.9 billion of direct in-state spending, $7 million in qualified wages, $600 million in qualified vendor expenditures, and the hiring of more than 6,000 cast and 9,000 crew members.
Feature films covered under the program have included "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," “Captain Marvel,” “Bumblebee,” "Space Jam 2" and "Sherlock Holmes 3." Earlier this year, Showtime's “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” became the 16th television series to relocate to California, joining “Good Girls,” “You,” “Sneaky Pete,” “Legion,” “Ballers” and "Veep." The state ditched the lottery approach several years ago and selects projects based on a jobs-creation formula.
Georgia is among the states that has approved anti-abortion legislation, which goes into effect next year if it survives a court challenge. Los Angeles Assembly member Luz Rivas authored Assembly Bill 1442, which has been dubbed the "Share Our Values" bill. Disney and Netflix have threatened to stop producing in Georgia if that happens.
The bill, which would cover five years with a $50 million annual allocation, was approved by Senate Governance and Finance Committee and is now headed to the Fiscal Senate Appropriations Committee.

Ayo, MJ
Let me tell these people why I’m old school, man
I am not a Myspace MC, I’m a pirate MC
From flava to dasha
From rinse to major
Rude boi, don watch dat
When it comes to da roadz, I lock that
Cause when it come to the flowz I got dat
Got cash, you could neva try rob dat
So move, the guy don’t know u
Dat means you ain’t old skool
From one pound-piece to notes, boo
K-A I’m old skool
Look, I’m vocal, but a lot of blokes chat a lot of bres
But the niggas, emotional
I’m old skool
Like opal fruits
Gob-stoppers or new- born babies
I’m a vet but they know they’re cool
They spittin through they headphones
I go back like flava FM
Tells stories by paper
Way before asia
Imitates were AB and M
Sound stars, turntabling top ten
And I was housin G like closer than closer
Till I found the MIC
And the vocals I wrote
I’m so cool with my old skoole shit
Addidas show shoes and my Stan smiths
I’m the man with a PH, 337
From cassettes to my CD seller
Rude boi, now watch dat
When it came to the scene, I locked dat
Cause when it come to the green, I stomp that
Gos cash, you can never ty rob that
So move nigga, I don’t know you
Dat means you ain’t old skool
From one pound pieces to notes, boo
K-A, so old skool
Beggas hate old skool life, and me?
Niggas know why my boss on da beat
Hardcore, neva go soft on the street
From “boys love girls” to “London Town”
I told the world and knocked London down
Total reputations ain’t deservin
From MCs that put the work in
I had a few tunes before Youtube
And I was a known face, before channel U
PP, reps to EQ
And my prada straps, so f*ck to these suits
Nigga danger-bound, but I’m no pimp fool
And my intro do I play? N O
Look, Look, dats one of my old skool lyrics
And I was an eskimo, Reloadin it
Now my disk gone clear
And yean I could win that battle on da stairs
Rude boi, don watch dat
When it comes to da roadz, I lock that
Cause when it come to the flowz I got dat
Got cash, you could neva try rob dat
So move, the guy don’t know u
Dat means you ain’t old skool
From one pound-piece to notes, boo
K-A I’m old skool
