starring who?

More darlings of the Disney channel?
Gee when will THEY take their clothes off ala Vanessa whats her name..

While I'm all for filming just don't pay them to do it. They did it without incentives for years !!!

Targeted incentives don't work. A more business friendly tax structure is far better at attracting company's to our area.
its time to end film incentives
