Opening of the State of Maryland legislature Annapolis, Md

Uh oh. It looks like Maryland’s 2014 legislative session ended without an agreement between the House and Senate on a tax credit to keep the House of Cards production in Maryland. When push came to shove, negotiations between the two chambers stalled out on the issue of invoking eminent domain to seize the property of film and television productions that leave the state. The House refuse to remove the Frank Underwood-worthy language, while the Senate refused to accept it.

With no agreement, the tax credit shrank from $18.5 million to $15 million, and we are left to wonder whether that will be enough for House of Cards producers to keep filming in Maryland.
