The following actions were taken on March 29 in the House on House bill HB3824 ("jussie act-film tax credit"): "Referred to Rules Committee", "First Reading", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Robert Martwick", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Andrew S. Chesney", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Margo McDermed", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Allen Skillicorn", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Brad Halbrook", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. David McSweeney", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Steven Reick" and "Filed with the Clerk by Rep. Michael P. McAuliffe".

The Rules Committees is a powerful standing committee in the House controlled by the majority. All legislation is assigned to the Rules Committee as a kind of legislative filter that sorts the more-than-6,000 bills introduced each year. The committee considers the legislation and often assigns it to other committees in order to be heard by other lawmakers. Sometimes, legislation dies in the Rules Committee if the committee decides it does not merit further consideration, occasionally leading to objections from the minority party that just a few legislators from the majority have the power to completely kill their legislation. Minority party members have objected that this makes it difficult or impossible for them to represent their constituents.

The bill, as it was introduced in the House by Rep. Michael P. McAuliffe (R-20) on March 29, "amends the Film Production Services Tax Credit Act of 2008," according to the General Assembly website.

The following house representatives also co-sponsored the bill: Andrew S. Chesney (R-89), Amy Grant (R-42), Brad Halbrook (R-102), Robert Martwick (D-19), Margo McDermed (R-37), David McSweeney (R-52), Steven Reick (R-63) and Allen Skillicorn (R-66).
