Colorado is looking to create more jobs in the "creative industries" of the state, and one bill being proposed could have an impact on video game productions.
A bill unveiled on Tuesday would make it easier for producers to earn tax credits for filming in the state by removing the requirement that 75 percent of the film’s non-payroll budget be spent in Colorado, according to an article in the Denver Daily News.
The bill also would "clarify that incentives may be used for commercial and video game productions as well." The state has a $300,000 incentive fund for the film industry, which could be used for jobs in the games industry.
The creative sector is the fifth largest industry in Colorado, and a state panel had been examining ways to expand it.
