The Associated Press reports:
Georgia lawmakers punished Delta Air Lines on Thursday for its decision to cut business ties with the National Rifle Association in the wake of a shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 people.
A tax measure, which was stripped of a jet-fuel tax break, passed the GOP-dominated Senate 44-10, with only Democrats opposed. It was the latest battle in a renewed debate over gun control and school safety after the Feb. 14 shooting.
The chamber took up the full tax bill Thursday with a 34-15 vote to prohibit amendments, blocking any efforts to restore the Delta tax break. No Republicans opposed the parliamentary move.
