CARSON CITY, NV (AP) -

Filmmakers now have more reasons than the rugged mountains and fabulous Las Vegas to shoot their movies in Nevada.

Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a bill into law that grants transferrable tax credits to major filmmakers in an effort to bring a new industry to the Silver State.

The program is a 4-year test, so lawmakers will have the opportunity to reverse course.

The tax credit bill was 1 of 45 pieces of legislation Sandoval signed Tuesday.

He is expected to sign or veto every bill before him by Friday.
