Delta Tax Break Would Clobber Clayton Co., Lawmakers Say

Delta Tax Break Would Clobber Clayton Co., Lawmakers Say

There's a figure that's getting a lot of attention in Clayton County these days.

"This will hit us to the tune of $13 million," said Rep. Gloria Tinubu, a Democrat who represents portions of Clayton, DeKalb and Fulton Counties.

The hit comes from a fuel tax break proposed for Delta Air Lines. And the government of Clayton County will absorb it disproportionately, say angry members of Clayton's legislative delegation.

"It's the only county in the state of Georgia that gets affected. The state has a hit. But Clayton County is the only county that takes a hit," said Rep. Roberta Abdul-Salaam (D-Clayton County), leader of the county's legislative delegation.

Clayton takes the hit because Hartsfield-Jackson Airport's concourses, where Delta aircraft are refueled, are all in Clayton County. Airlines that refuel at Hartsfield-Jackson pay fuel tax to the state and Clayton county.
