bill signed by governor

BURBANK -- Gov. Gray Davis has signed into law a local

assemblyman’s bill that makes it illegal for elected officials to

solicit charitable donations for city services in exchange for a film



Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank) wrote the bill with the hope

that the state does everything it can to keep film productions from

migrating outside of the area. According to a release from Frommer’s

office, production employment in the state fell by 7,400 jobs between

1999 and 2001. Frommer is a member of the California Film Commission.
