Washington – The following is a statement from Charles Rivkin, CEO of the Motion Picture Association (MPAA), following Senator Orrin Hatch’s (R-Utah) introduction of the Senate plan for tax reform.

“The MPAA applauds the tax proposal released by the Senate Finance Committee. The U.S. film and television industry supports two million American jobs and is comprised of tens of thousands of small businesses across all 50 states. Meaningful tax reform, as reflected in the Senate plan, will encourage economic growth and job creation in American industries, including film and television.
