NBAA thanked a bipartisan group of 28 U.S. senators yesterday for sending a letter to President Obama opposing the $100-per-flight user fee proposed in his Fiscal Year 2013 budget. The senators’ letter emphasized, “We believe the per-gallon tax assessed on aviation gasoline and jet fuel is the most efficient and effective way to generate revenue from aviation users.” A bipartisan group of 195 House members also recently sent a letter to President Obama opposing user fees.
