Tulsa county voters rejected a sales-tax measure on Tuesday that would have benefited American Airlines' maintenance facility in Tulsa.
According to the Tulsa World, county residents voted against a proposition totalling $386.88 million that would have improved three city-owned industrial site, with the majority of the money improving American's maintenance facility.
The sales-tax package, known as Vision2, would have funded retrofitting hangars to accomodate larger planes in American's fleet, test cells for larger jet engines and ramp improvements. The 0.6 percent Vision2 tax would have run from 2017 until 2029.
American's management and labor unions had publicly supported the Vision2 project, contributing a combined $77,500 to the half-million dollar campaign to pass the sales-tax, the Tulsa World reported.
