Iowa lawmakers are examining the state’s tax credit programs during this year’s legislative session. At the center of the discussion is the now controversial film tax credit program. Ed Raber with the Washington Economic Development Group says Washington County did benefit from movie making in the area. He hopes lawmakers find a way to salvage the program. Raber says other tax credits such as those for renewable energy and charitable donations to community endowments have also had a positive local impact.
