No Taxpayer Giveaways to Video Game Makers This Year!

H.2487 and H.2606, which would have extended the film tax credit to video game companies, is dead.  The Massachusetts Joint Committee on Revenue voted to send the bills to study and not consider them this session.  A big thank you to everyone who signed our petition and spoke in opposition to these bills.

No doubt these bills will be brought up in the next session and with the $170+ million GE subsidy this year, it is clear the legislature is still eager to use our tax dollars to line the pockets of corporations.  While we can rejoice in the part we played in saving Massachusetts $50 million dollars a year, it is clear that Massachusetts needs Pirates to step up and run for the Massachusetts legislature.  Massachusetts is counting on you!
