Gov. Beshear encourages film production in Kentucky
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is touting legislation that he hopes will result in more movies being made in Kentucky.
The governor actually signed the legislation into law last month. But he and others will appear on Tuesday at the Keeneland horse track in Lexington for the ceremonial signing.
Among other things, the legislation offers tax breaks to film crews that do work in Kentucky. Film, commercial and documentary producers could be eligible. Things such as set construction, wardrobe, food, and accommodations would also be eligible.
