Georgia lawmakers are returning to the Capitol for a special session focused on funding for hurricane recovery and reconsidering a tax break on jet fuel.
The House and Senate were scheduled to convene Tuesday morning. Gov. Nathan Deal ordered the special session last week.
The governor’s proclamation limited lawmakers to deciding just two issues. First, Deal wants approval of $270 million in state funding for cleanup and recovery costs in parts of southwest Georgia devastated by Hurricane Michael.
Deal is also asking lawmakers to take another shot at approving a tax break on jet fuel. Republican legislators killed it earlier this year to punish Delta Air Lines for ending discounts for National Rifle Association members. Deal restored the perk with an executive order suspending collection of the 4-percent tax.
