A film incentive grant program is included in the current budget compromise. But an amendment proposed by Republican Representative Ted Davis from New Hanover County would maintain the existing structure of the film tax rebate for one year. The proposal passed the House during Thursday's session by a wide margin.

Ted Davis’ amendment to Senate Bill 763 would extend the current tax rebates for one year, which would allow time for an independent study to be completed.

On Thursday, local leaders from beach towns, the City of Wilmington, UNCW and Cape Fear Community College joined New Hanover County Commissioners and newly-elected state leaders for the first meeting of the local officials’ caucus. 

During last night’s State House District 19 Candidate Forum at WHQR, Republican Candidate and Incumbent Ted Davis and Democratic Candidate Emilie Swearingen agreed on a handful of issues.
