Grassroots group calls on state to eliminate cronyism and corporate welfare
Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) the state’s leading grassroots advocates against corporate welfare is calling on legislators to oppose S.B. 526 by Senator Joe Gruters. AFP-FL and our activists believe strongly that government should not use tax dollars as handouts for corporate welfare.
S.B. 526 allows for up to $2 million per qualified film project to be given out by the state to a movie, television, or digital gaming businesses.
AFP-FL state director, Skylar Zander released the following statement:
“Hollywood handouts have failed taxpayers before and only amount to corporate welfare. Instead of handouts to companies, we’d like to work with Senator Gruters and the Film Industry towards pro-market solutions for economic growth that could remove unnecessary regulations and fees that would otherwise make it easier for industry workers and entrepreneurs to succeed.”
AFP-FL sent members of the Senate Commerce & Tourism Committee a key vote alert. The group will score votes on S.B. 526 in the group’s annual legislative scorecard.
