In a Tuesday night tweet, Mayor Lyda Krewson made a pitch to Delta for them to move their headquarters from Atlanta to St. Louis.
The tweet comes after Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle used his post to stop a proposal that would have provided a tax break to Delta.
I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.— Casey Cagle (@CaseyCagle) February 26, 2018
The move by Cagle took place after Delta announced it ended a partnership with NRA after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Georgia state lawmakers may slash $50 million dollars in tax benefits for Delta.
Delta is one of several corporations to make such a move.
