It hasn't even been voted on, but already the Michigan film office is feeling the fallout of Snyder's budget.
The superhero flick, "The Avengers", starring Robert Downey Jr. has scrapped plans to film here.
Sources within the film industry say the studio wasn't waiting around to see the outcome of the budget plan.
Supporters of the film tax credit fear other production companies will follow suit, and make their movies in other states.
Several big movies were filmed in the state last year such as Hugh Jackman's movie in Mason--and Scream 4 in Ann Arbor.
