California Governor Gavin Newsom said he supports $1.65 billion in new TV and movie tax credits, goading Hollywood studios to film in his state after the US Supreme Court rolled back abortion rights nationally.

The Democrat, who’s seeking reelection in November, said he’s backing legislation that would continue to provide financial support to Hollywood worth $330 million annually through 2030, extending the program five years.
