Gov. Rick Snyder has signed a bill to eliminate state incentives for film and television productions in Michigan, ending a program that went from bang to bust in seven years.
While the state will stop granting subsidies to movie projects at the end of next year, Snyder said, it's important to keep the Michigan Film Office to assist producers who still want to shoot movies in Michigan locations. An earlier version of the legislation called for elimination of the film office.
