Members of the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee have indicated they want to restore tax credits for film makers who do movies in Wisconsin, even though Governor Doyle eliminated them in his budget proposal.
Doyle says the state shouldn't be spending the money to boost salaries of wealthy movie producers and stylists. He says the $4 million expenditure would be better spent on trying to create long term jobs for the state.
Doyle calls the Hollywood tax credits "basically flawed."
If the Hollywood credit is restored by legislative budget writers, it could face a veto from the governor.
