The House of Delegates engaged in a vigorous debate about the value of West Virginia’s film tax credit and then left off on a cliffhanger.
As debate roiled in the House, Majority Leader Daryl Cowles defended the bill that would do away with the film tax credit and then moved to postpone action one day.
The bill was up for a passage vote on Thursday in the House.
The bill had already passed the Senate. And the state Legislative Auditor concluded a month ago that the state should do away with the credit, saying it’s not getting enough bang for the buck.
