The Hollywood Chamber is pleased to announce a return address from State Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León at Paramount Pictures on Thursday, August 10th. Registration and networking will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by the luncheon from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. This luncheon will be held on the Paramount Studios lot, inside the Paramount Theatre, which allows for personal interaction with the Senator and other guests.

As he nears his term limit, Senate President de León will offer powerful insights on what has been accomplished, and what still needs to be done. This includes a recap of AB1839, the film tax credit expansion which he played a pivotal role in passing. As Senator de Leon has been a vocal advocate for the studios and the jobs they create, he will share insights on the plan to ensure the extension of AB1839 which will be expiring in the near future.

The Senate ProTem will also discuss other state wide issues including job creation in the solar industry as well as the affordable housing crisis in California. 

Senator de León is the 50th President pro Tempore of the California State Senate and the first Latino elected to the position in more than 130 years. He has been serving Hollywood since 2006, when he was first elected to represent the 45th district in the California State Assembly. In 2010, he was elected to the California State Senate. He was the lead negotiator for the expansion of California’s Film and Television Tax Credit to keep Hollywood production jobs at home in the Golden State. In addition he has focused his efforts on issues impacting the environment, the working poor, immigration, and public safety.
