"Republican lawmakers in Georgia are threatening to block a tax benefit for Delta Air Lines because they disagree with the company's political stance on the National Rifle Association.

After Delta announced it was ending its flight deals for NRA members traveling to the organization's annual meeting, Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R) announced he would kill legislation that lawmakers are considering to provide a sales-tax break on jet fuel. The break would primarily benefit the Atlanta-based airline.

There are indications he will have support from his colleagues in the state Senate to do just that, despite the fact that the state House approved the tax break, which would benefit one of Georgia's largest employers.

The fight in Georgia has made national headlines, but President Trump has been silent on the issue. There's reason to believe he may chime in. On one hand, the president has been leaning more into pro-NRA policies since the Florida high school shooting, but you could also argue that Georgia lawmakers threatening a company contradicts the president's attempt to be more pro-business.”*
