Dear Friends,

I am proud to announce that the Legislature overwhelmingly passed a $330 million Entertainment Tax Credit to bring "below the line" and post-production jobs back home! With an opportunity to bring thousands of jobs to California, the Legislature rose to the challenge and answered the call.

Building on the success of the landmark 2009 legislation, this bill triples the amount of incentives for film productions in the Golden State from $100 million to $330 million in tax credits a year. AB 1839 will retain tens of thousands of jobs in the Entertainment Industry, keeping vital film jobs in Los Angeles for our hard working families.

The Entertainment Tax Credit (AB 1839) provides California a competitive edge in promoting a long standing industry, which will result in thousands of jobs, along with billions in economic output and state and local tax revenue.

A single $175-million motion picture filmed wholly in California will:

  • Employ more than 2,400 Californians during production.
  • Generate more than $470 million in total economic output.
  • Generate $27 million in total state and local tax revenue.

*Estimates provided by www.filmworksla.com

Job creation is my number one priority. That is why since taking office, I was proud to introduce three measures, AB 286, AB 1189, and AB 2700 calling for an expansion of the Entertainment Tax Credit.

I will continue to work diligently to ensure that we preserve the viability of the Entertainment Industry in California for years to come.

Dear Friend,

I have a dreamEven now, 46 years after his death, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s contribution to developing a more equal society - one where all Americans have the opportunity to succeed - remains unmatched.

Each year, the Legislature honors his birthday with an Assembly Concurrent Resolution. I am proud to be a co-author of that resolution this year.

I encourage you to give back to the community in Dr. King's honor and perform community service. Help the community, stand up for an ideal you believe in, and work to make the world a better place. This is the legacy that I believe Dr. King would ask of us in his memory.

If you would like to find opportunities to volunteer in our area, please contact my office at (818) 376-4246 or email me.

Dear Friends,

Typhoon HaiyanI want to express my condolences to those affected by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda and the Filipino community in the United States. My deepest sympathies are with the Filipino people at this devastating time.

What is particularly frightening is that many people locally are having difficulty locating their relatives in the Philippines, and are unsure of where to turn to check on them. To that end, if you or someone you know is in this situation, please refer to Restoring Family Links, from the International and National Red Cross.

Further, many concerned citizens have contacted my office to determine how to help in the unprecedented humanitarian effort that will need to be undertaken to assist the Philippines in its recovery. Now, more than ever, the people of the Philippines need our help. Visit this site to learn more about the tragedy and how you can help.

Sincerely,

There are many individuals, seniors and families in our community with limited access to fresh produce. Meanwhile, millions of pounds of fresh fruit grown in the backyards of the San Fernando Valley and across Los Angeles County go uneaten - rotting on lawns, attracting rodents and ultimately ending up being wasted.

To connect this abundance of food with the needs of our community, the Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council and the Office of Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian are partnering with Food Forward and ONEgeneration to host a Community Fruit Drive - an alternative to the traditional can drive - inviting residents of Lake Balboa and our surrounding neighborhoods to share a portion of their backyard harvest.

HOW TO BE INVOLVED:

  • Register your fruit tree at FoodForward.org or call (818)764-1022. (Please mention the LBNC/ONEgeneration Fruit Drive when registering.)
  • Bring a small reusable bag filled with fruit from your backyard to the Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council Community Fruit Drive at:
    ONEgeneration/Encino's Farmers Market
    Sunday, December 22, 2013
    8am-1pm

In addition to collecting fruit, Assemblymember Nazarian's staff will be on hand to address your questions or concerns about state and local legislative issues.

At your service,

Dear Neighbors,

The Pink PlateSo many of us have seen firsthand the devastating and far-reaching effect breast cancer has had on families across California. We can and must do more to help. That is why I am co-authoring Assembly Bill (AB) 49 to create a Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Specialized License Plate. Revenue from the specialized plate will fund breast cancer awareness programs and breast cancer screenings for low-income women across California.

For the Pink Plate to become a reality, we have to accomplish two goals:

1. AB 49 must pass the Legislature and be signed by the Governor in order to authorize the Pink Plate design.

2. Once AB 49 passes we will submit 7,500 prepaid applications to the DMV to start producing the new Pink Plate.

In order for AB 49 to pass we need to demonstrate to my fellow legislators and the Governor that we have enough grassroots support to easily reach the 7,500 prepaid applications. Right now we just need everyone who supports the idea of creating a Pink Plate to register their support.

Visit www.pinkplate.org to learn more and register your support. Help us spread the word by forwarding this message to your friends and colleagues.

Sincerely,

Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian Signature
