LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – The Nevada Film Office has awarded its first tax credit for the filming of "Mall Cop: Blart 2" planned by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The announcement was made today by the Governor's Office of Economic Development.

“The production will receive $4.3 million in tax credits provided that the filming takes place in Nevada and that production costs are in line with those proposed in the application, along with other qualifying criteria," the news release said.

“I’d like to thank Sony Pictures for their interest in filming in Nevada and for working with our office so well,” said Eric Preiss, director of the Nevada Film Office.

Three additional applications for film tax credits will be heard on April 14.

Created during the 2011 session of the Legislature, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development is the result of a collaborative effort between the Legislature and Gov. Brian Sandoval to restructure economic development in the state.

GOED’s role is to promote a robust, diversified and prosperous economy in Nevada, to stimulate business expansion and retention, encourage entrepreneurial enterprise, attract new businesses and facilitate community development.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
