The governor appoints 13 members: four are appointed by the state Senate, and four by the state Assembly. There are still five vacancies on the advisory board, which has 16 members presently.
Among other things, the commission promotes filmmaking in the state, handles online permits for filming on state property, runs a location database and administers the annual allocation of $100 million in financial incentives provided by the state to retain and attract movie and TV productions.
