Governor wants movies made in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear is touting legislation
that he hopes will result in more movies being made in Kentucky.

The governor actually signed the legislation into law last
month. But he and others will appear on Tuesday at the Keeneland
horse track in Lexington for the ceremonial signing.

The event is set for 11:30 a.m. EDT.

Among other things, the legislation offers tax breaks to film
crews that do work in Kentucky. Film, commercial and documentary
producers could be eligible. Things such as set construction,
wardrobe, food and accommodations would also be eligible.
