Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Thursday he signed bills to grant tax relief on entertainment industry expenses and hunting supply purchases.
Meanwhile, Orleans Parish’s top prosecutor can get around state nepotism laws to hire his daughter, thanks to Jindal allowing other legislation to become law without his signature.
The tax breaks include an increased credit for the motion picture industry. Jindal signed House Bill 898, which raises the film production tax credit to 30 percent, matching what Georgia offers. The 30 percent tax credit is different from what the governor originally proposed.
