Two of the three bills introduced last year to cap or eliminate the
incentives came from representatives of Lincoln County. Rep. Dennis Kintigh
(R)Dist 57 introduced a bill that would have eliminated the incentive all
together. Sen Tim Jennings (D) Dist 32 proposed a bill that would have
capped the incentives (I think at 50M). We in Lincoln County are working to
educate these guys as to the need for the film tax incentives. We, all of
us, need to talk to our legislators and let them know how important the
incentive are to the New Mexicans who work in the film, digital media and
post production industries.

The state legislature is the key. The governor can only persuade, and
I don't think either of these candidates will throw clout at this
issue the way Richardson did. Contact your district's candidates and
ask them -- that will already make them aware that some of their
constituents care about it.
