LEGISLATIVE



LFEA EFFORTS

The LFEA lobbies the Louisiana State Legislature on behalf of the local film and entertainment industries. The association represents a unified voice for industry professionals and businesses, and pushes the legislature to keep and continue to make favorable legislation so these industries may continue to grow and thrive.

Most recently, LFEA successfully lobbied the Louisiana legislature to keep in place tax breaks which have played an integral role in the exponential growth of the entertainment industry in the last 10 years. This action saved a potentially disastrous exodus of industries that have had substantial positive economic impact on the state and its citizens. The tax breaks have and will continue to bring millions of dollars into the Louisiana economy and thousands of jobs to Louisiana citizens.
