Legislature notebook: Bill would bar ‘sexually explicit’ movies made in New Mexico from claiming tax credits (lcsun-news.com)
LAS CRUCES – Legislation introduced this week in the House would create a new government board to determine which movies were too risqué to receive the state’s film production tax credit.
House Bill 283 would prohibit the tax credit from being claimed for any movie that “contains sexually explicit conduct that most parents would consider patently too adult for their children aged 17 and under.”
The bill, sponsored by T. Ryan Lane, R-Aztec; Candie Sweetser, D-Deming; Gail Armstrong, R-Magdalena; and Stefani Lord, R-Sandia Park; will get its first hearing in the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee.
