Currently, Georgia has the fourth highest fuel tax burden among 21 states with large hub airports. The largest economic driver in Georgia happens to be Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport – with a yearly impact of $58 billion. Fuel is the airlines’ second biggest cost behind labor.

A new measure proposed in House Bill 821 would remove almost all taxes on jet fuel.
