Sen. Peralta was quoted in an article published by the Patch regarding his legislation to close the loophole that allows corporations to save millions of dollars in jet fuel taxes in New York and New Jersey.
Patch: “The time has come for us to catch up to the rest of the country, and close this tax loophole,” Peralta agreed. “Airlines are very profitable, and they don’t need these huge tax breaks as it relates to the jet fuel they need to operate. The time has come for the airlines to stop using contractors who pay poverty wages to airport workers, who all too often must rely on public assistance to make ends meet, to just get by.”
