CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Wyoming House has backed continuing the state's film incentive program.

Representatives voted 45-12 on Thursday to extend the cash rebates to filmmakers who shoot in Wyoming.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that Senate 41 now goes back to the Senate to approve changes made in the House. If senators agree with the new version of the bill, it will head to the governor's desk.

The program has been in existence for three years and Republican Rep. Ann Petroff of Jackson says it has helped promote Wyoming tourism. She says the $500,000 spent on the program has led to numerous showings on television as well as DVDs.
