RESOLUTION NO. 990288

 

Increasing the list of the Citys state legislative priorities for 1999 by adding one new priority pertaining to sales tax rebates for qualified film production projects.

 

WHEREAS, motion picture and television film production has a tremendous economic impact and is a non-polluting industry which requires no additional infrastructure costs; and

 

WHEREAS, films recently produced within or near Kansas City, such as Ride With The Devil, Truman and Kansas City, contributed substantially to the Citys economy; and

 

WHEREAS, in recent years, fourteen states have initiated tax incentives such as exemptions or rebates to lure film makers and their production dollars to their state, and more are considering doing so; and

 

WHEREAS, Missouri and Kansas City have much to offer the film industry and should therefore provide similar tax incentives in order to promote the State and City as film friendly entities which are serious about attracting film production to Missouri; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Council of Kansas City adds the following state legislative priority to its list for 1999:

 

SALES TAX REBATES FOR QUALIFIED FILM PRODUCTION PROJECTS

 

Support legislation authorizing reimbursement of state sales taxes for motion picture and television film projects for which substantial portions are produced within Missouri as provided in House Bill 251.
