Kenosha votes to support Senate Bill 1026

The Kenosha City Council voted 13-1 last Wednesday night to support Senate Bill 1026, marking a step forward for Wisconsin’s efforts to help grow its own film and television industry. This bill, aimed at establishing vital film and television production incentives, alongside a new state film office, promises to unlock a wealth of economic and creative opportunities for the state. With Wisconsin currently lagging behind as one of only a few states without such incentives or a dedicated film office, the passage of this bill could dramatically transform our local economy, attracting investment and spotlighting Wisconsin’s untapped potential.

Championed by local leaders and supported by industry luminaries like Kenosha native Mark Ruffalo, Senate Bill 1026 seeks to not only bring Hollywood to Wisconsin but also to foster a nurturing environment for local talent. The bill’s proposed tax credits and the establishment of a state film office are crucial steps toward making Wisconsin a competitive destination for film production, promising to stimulate economic growth, create jobs, and enhance the state’s cultural landscape.

This is a great initiative for the state of Wisconsin. It will bring hundreds of millions of film dollars into a state that is perfect to shoot in

As Kenosha voices its support, the momentum behind Senate Bill 1026 grows, signaling a bipartisan effort to revitalize Wisconsin’s creative economy. This legislation represents more than just a bid for film industry acclaim; it’s a call to action for economic innovation, community development, and artistic expression. By backing this bill, Wisconsin can open new doors for local artists, entrepreneurs, and communities, ensuring a vibrant and prosperous future for the state’s film and television sector.
