Vermont is the worst state in the Union... hopefully they will succeed at becoming there own country so we can laugh at them when the US places a tariff on every import and export. Exports: maple syrup and yuppies. Imports: everything else.

Do our representatives actually think that industries of any type will move and stay here once they find out how many different taxes there are and how high some of the mil rates are. GOOD LUCK AND KEEP DREAMING!

as it has always been, the ct. film commission worries only about revenue from film making in ct. there has never been attention paid to local proffesionals aquiring work on these films. ct. has some brilliant production people who never see a day's work from outside film companies who come here. they buy a lot of gas, stay in fine hotels and eat fine food. that seems to be enough...

I live in Bridgeport and have worked on 5 films since last summer in CT. The tax credit is the reason for this. After 12 years in the biz my commute has never been better! On all of these films there have been a good amount of local emplyees.
