Movie Bill on the Way

Bud Oakey's General Assembly post today reports that the movie bill we've written about a couple of times in this space seems to be moving toward some success (and one would not predict complete success for anything worthwhile with this group of legislators). Bud's post is here if you missed it on the front page of this blog.

In a nutshell, the bill would give incentives for movies to locate in Virginia. The issue came up recently when novelist Sharyn McCrumb of Roanoke County was hoping to get her book The Rosewood Casket produced in Virginia and not North Carolina or Georgia, which were making a big push with financial incentives.
