And the numbers they need to crunch are very hard to discern, making their case even more untenable.
The legislature will listen to "clean jobs" and "they spent $10M" only so long before they ask "How does NC benefit using numbers?"
I firmly believe that's why NC FIlm and WFA are not at the Legislature now. They need a set of numbers to get that "deer in the headlight" look from legislators from Haywood, Clay, and Avery counties (for example) who otherwise don't give a damn about Wilmington or big movie stars.
They don't have the numbers.
Oh and the part time jobs are a big part of resistance to the film industry incentives. Heck I think some Republicans are openly questioning Pat about the size of Pats MetLife give away.
