It’s Time To Move SSB 5760


We have a Senate Ways & Means committee hearing on SSB 5760 scheduled for Thursday, February 22nd. With only 3 weeks left in the 2022 legislative session, we need to get that bill out of committee so that it becomes eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.  


If your Senator is a member of the Senate Ways & Means Committee, this ACTION ALERT is for you!

Don’t know your legislative district? You can find that info here.


If your Senator sits on the Ways & Means Committee, please take 5 minutes to email asking them to vote SSB 5760 out of committee and to keep the funding at $20M a year. Take a look at this handy spreadsheet to see the names of the Senators on the Committee and their contact information. If you have already written to your Senator about this – THANK YOU!  


Your communication can be short and sweet, 3-4 sentences tops! Here is what we suggest you include: 


  1. Who you are and how you are affiliated with the film industry
  2. Why you think it’s important to pass SSB 5760 to increase funding for the MPCP
  3. Ask your Senator to pass the bill out of committee and to keep the level of funding for the program at $20M annually
  4. Thank them for their time and consideration.  


Here’s a sample email that you can use for inspiration:

Thank you for your time and consideration,

(Your name here)
