ABSTRACT
The article reports that leaders of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) are toughening up the guild's policy on members who file for "financial core" (fi-core) status. Filing of fi-core means withdrawal of SAG membership and withholding of dues spent by SAG on political activities. According to SAG's Doug Allen and Todd Amorde, SAG members who file for fi-core will not be allowed back into the union.
