Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation encourages each member of the Georgia congressional delegation to intercede with the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation to prevent loss of aviation fuel tax revenue. A 2015 FAA ruling provides that taxes derived from the sale of aviation fuel must be spent for aviation purposes, even in the tax in question is a generally applicable tax. This FAA ruling will impact all counties (and cities) that have within their boundaries an airport that sells aviation fuel.
