Jordan's Journal with Rep. Angus McKelvey

On the next episode of Jordan’s Journal, Rep. Jo Jordan sits down with Representative Angus McKelvey, the chairman of the House Committee on Economic Revitalization and Business.

They talk about aerospace, broadband, film and digital media, and how the state must take advantage of the unique opportunities we have here in Hawaii to stimulate these areas and revitalize our economy.

Rep. McKelvey mentions his work on measures that will restructure the film tax credit so that it becomes tied into more local jobs and use of local vendors. He says that we have the talent here that the film industry can use in all processes of making a movie. His idea is to require film companies to hire local people at all levels of production.
