Georgia lawmakers are close to passing a bill that denies Delta Airlines a $38 million tax exemption for jet fuel.
Republicans are sticking to their word after they promised the airline there would be consequences after Delta severed ties with the NRA due to backlash after the Parkland shooting.
Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle was also very adamant about his disapproval of the airline’s decision:
I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.

According to the Associated Press, the bill passed through both chambers by wide margins, and Georgia Governor Nathan Deal (R) has already indicated that he will sign it.
