Film companies sue over lost Iowa incentives

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Five filmmakers have filed two lawsuits seeking to force the state to make good on promised incentives to make movies in Iowa.

The companies claim the state approved $6.5 million in tax credits to make movies in Iowa, then failed to execute a contract for the incentives after Gov. Culver halted the program in September.

The Governor ordered the program shut down after allegations of mismanagement.

The companies say that order doesn't include programs that were already approved.
