WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - North Carolina senators approved a bill Wednesday that would expand incentives to film makers.
Senator Julia Boseman said a bill going up for vote would increase the tax break incentives from 15% to 25%.
Industry insiders say it's needed to keep films from leaving North Carolina for other states with better offers.
Opponents say incentives only benefit Hollywood and that states never recoup the money they spend.
The film incentive bill will now go onto the state House.
