First, love your show!
With you talking about making "taxes sexy" this morning, got me thinking about employment here in Oregon - who's working, who's not sort of thing. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am offering up this idea because of a friend of mine and further research on my part after a discussion we had.
I didn't realize how much film/media production occurs here and how many of these companies live and work here. Apparently, the Oregon Film and Television Office, together with several media associations throughout the state, have done a lot to advertise Oregon and promote it as a great place to make movies. Because of various incentive programs, media/film production has grown by 114 percent.
I did further research on www.ompa.org - and found out that there is a legislative push to ask for support of the upcoming SB621, which will increase the Production Investment Fund.
Oregon always feels like such an entreprenaureal place. It's wonderful that so many creative things are going on here - thought I'd pass this along in that spirit.
Thanks for platform to relay this thought.
