Filmmakers to be reimbursed for police costs

Gov. Gray Davis has signed legislation to reimburse the costs incurred in using local police to monitor filming on public property in California.

Davis said Senate Bill 1356, by Sen. Kevin Murray (D-Los Angeles), will go into effect Oct. 1 and reimburse filmmakers up to $750 a day for monitoring costs associated with local law enforcement with reimbursement cap of $3,000 per production/episode. Previously, local police costs were not reimbursable.

The legislation is designed to augment the state’s two-year-old Film California First program to encourage local production through rebates.
