“To set the record straight, we have not imposed a moratorium on film and television projects in Louisiana, and we hope to produce more in the future,” said a spokesman for Disney/ABC Television Group. “Louisiana’s film incentives program has played an important role in our decision to produce content there and, with respect to future projects, we will assess the effect of the recent legislative changes on a case-by-case basis.”

“As lieutenant governor,” Dardenne said, “I know many of our visitors to Louisiana are here because of the exposure we have received on television and as the preferred location for more feature films than anywhere in North America. This industry is also a perfect fit for the creative culture in Louisiana, which we enjoy, and of which we are so proud. I want the thousands of Louisianans working in the film industry right now to know that I am committed to keeping their jobs here. As soon as I am sworn in as governor in January, I will work to rectify this mistake and keep us rolling. “

"Considering the number of carpenters, plumbers, electricians, food and beverage workers, artists, painters and countless other professionals are constantly called in to work on sets and productions, the benefit to the state must be greater than the specific research indicates. Then consider all of those who work in the film industry here who spend their money at local businesses where film shootings are taking place and in businesses in their own neighborhoods."
