Doing More to Keep Production in Hollywood

As he worked to create jobs and promote economic development in his district, Eric has long been a strong advocate of production jobs. With the right incentives, film and television will continue to be a major industry here in Los Angeles. That's why it was great to see the City Council pass Eric's plan to help keep productions here:

The plan was sponsored by City Councilman Eric Garcetti, who is engaged in a race for mayor that has seen contenders elevate the problem of runaway production as an urgent issue for the region as other states sweeten incentives to lure shows.
