And Howard...how long does it take to make a movie? Be nice if it took forever, like many of those industries that are here permanently, not here one day and gone the next. Duhhh...

Highly debateable. Many of these people live better than some others do, particularly in the group homes. Many residents who are well enough to live independently aren't encouraged enough, and so they just lay around or sit around all day when given the chance.

I concur with Mr. Goodell on this one, assuming everything in this article is factual. That being said, the filmmakers enticement tax is used to bring money into the state, not just hand it over to Hollywood, as the article implies. The idea is to bring in more funds to the surrounding filming site, generating sales tax revenue, helping small business, etc. This takes place in areas other than NYC. I agree this is a good choice to restore the monies for the disabled. Taking this money out of the budget in the first place was an atrocity.
