STATEMENT FROM SENATOR PATRICK M. GALLIVAN ABOUT LIONSGATE’S DECISION NOT TO FILM “DRAFT DAY” IN WESTERN NEW YORK

“The news today that Cleveland was selected over western New York as the filming location for “Draft Day” – a film about the Buffalo Bills and set in and around western New York – is just the latest example of why New York State needs to expand and reform its film production tax credit program to make Upstate and western New York more attractive to the entertainment industry. We have desirable locations throughout the area, we have near universal support from within the community, but we are lacking an incentive program that can compete with neighboring states. Western New York didn’t lose a movie today, we lost jobs; a failure to act after  this latest development would be inexcusable."
