Lawmakers agree to ban Louisiana film tax breaks for porn

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - Pornographic films won't be eligible for Louisiana's film tax credit program, under a bill heading to the governor's desk.

House Bill 312: www.legis.la.gov

Supporters of the measure say the state Department of Economic Development currently doesn't issue the tax credits to projects involving pornography. The legislation by Rep. Mark Abraham, a Lake Charles Republican, will codify that into law.

The Senate gave final passage to the measure with a 31-0 vote Friday. It previously had been approved by lawmakers in the House with a 97-0 vote.

If signed, the new law would take effect July 1.
