Arizona Film Update

Friends of Film in Arizona,

Thank you for the hundreds of phone calls to the Governor's offices yesterday and to Speaker Tobin's office asking that HB2127 be put to a vote today.

If you haven't called yet, or if you want to call again, here's contact information. There are just hours left in the session which begins at 10 AM:

Governor's Phoenix Office:           (602) 542.4331
Governor's Tucson Office:             (520) 628.6580

Speaker Tobin:                                 (602) 926.5172             <>

Ask the Governor's office to "please allow Speaker Tobin to put the Multimedia Production Jobs Bill,  HB2127 to a vote." They will tell you that the Governor has nothing to do with it, but we know that's not true.

Ask Speaker Tobin's office to "please put the Multimedia Production Jobs Bill, HB2127 on the agenda today."

If you want more information about what's going on and what's at stake, following is an email to the Governor's office this morning from a major bill stakeholder, George Weisz.

Help us bring the Jobs and Economic Impact of the multi-billion dollar film and TV industry back to Arizona in this our Centennial year.
