Client Update – Action Request – Support Proposed Amendment to Overturn FAA Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue (Federal Regulation 66282, November 7, 2014)

Congressman Lowenthal (Long Beach) is proposing an amendment to overturn the FAA rule making of 2014 and reestablish 29 years of FAA interpretation by clarifying Congress’ original intent that general sales taxes are not subject to 49 U.S.C. Sections 47107(b)(1) and 47133(a), and that “local tax on aviation fuel” means local excise taxes on aviation fuel.
