Another tax was assigned to the Board in 1969 when legislation imposed a two-cents-per-gallon tax on all jet fuel used in the state except that used by the armed forces, common carriers, or persons engaged in constructing or repairing aircraft.121 The revenue obtained from the Aircraft Jet Fuel Tax is transferred to the Aeronautics Fund, to be used for improving airports.
