Bob Iger Threatens to Pull Business from Georgia if New Abortion Law Passed
Bob Iger, Walt Disney Company CEO, recently spoke to Reuters about the future of doing business in Georgia if the new abortion law takes effect, saying it would be difficult.
After being asked if would continue doing business there, he said, "I rather doubt we will. I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard. Right now, we are watching it very carefully." He added, "I don't see how it's practical for us to continue to shoot there."
Georgia is a popular state for the entertainment business, offering tax credits for those who film there. Disney filmed Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame there.
Film and TV production have added more than 92,000 jobs in the state, with over 450 productions filming in 2018 alone.
