Cast members of the television program "Army Wives" are urging South Carolina lawmakers to continue the incentives for the program.
Multiple media outlets reported about a dozen cast members gathered in Charleston on Sunday to encourage people to push for the state's incentive package.
Gov. Mark Sanford had vetoed the incentives offered to the program and lawmakers narrowly overrode the veto.
Wendy Davis plays Lt. Col. Joan Burton on the show and says the cast shouldn't have to plead for the incentives each year. Davis says she doesn't think people realize how much the film industry puts into the local economy.
The Carolina Film Alliance organized the meeting, which attracted more than 100 people.
