Wilk Weekly Update - August 21, 2013


Thank you for tuning into Scott Wilk’s Weekly Update, right here on Santa Clarita’s Hometown Station, AM 1220 KHTS.  



Hosting The Travel And Tourism Briefing...

 

I host on the Arts and Entertainment Committee, which is one of the five committees I sit on.  This Committee is responsible for sound recording, film sports internet and more.  Yesterday we had the Visitors Bureau and Tour Briefing.  I don’t think that we appreciate that California is such a tourist destination.  We are in the top 5 places to go, and ranked #15th in global destinations.  In 2012, LA county spent 22 billion dollars on tourism. One of the embassadors for california since Arnold Schwarzenegger is Rob Lowe, from shows like West Wing and Parks and Recreation.  So Rob Lowe was in the house yesterday, he was part of the briefing, then he did a Q&A.  



California And Tourism And The Film Industry...

 

A large part of California’s jobs and tourism ties into the film industry.  People come into the state to film, which creates jobs, and tourists want to come to see the stars and locations.  California is losing a large chunk of the film industry due to the fact that other states including British Columbia give better tax breaks.  





Assemblyman Scott Wilk Co-hosts a Telephone Town Hall With Senator George Runner...



If you live in unincorporated santa clarita valley,  the state has imposed a $150 Fire Fee on you.  I was opposed to this tax, but we are trying to place an initiative to roll it back. Most people still don’t know how it works, why it has happened  or how to counteract it.  Next wednesday the 28th at 6 PM Senator George Runner and myself will be holding a telephone town hall meeting.  Interested Participants who want to be connected to the call must register Here.
