Statutory Revision Committee. In 2021, the general assembly
enacted a law to restructure the gasoline and special fuel tax. As a result
of that legislation, there are 2 defects with the definitions used for
purposes of the tax. First, within the definition of bulk transfer and
terminal system, which generally applies to gasoline and special fuel,

there is one reference that only applies to gasoline. The bill adds special
fuel to the definition, so that the definition consistently applies to both
types of fuel.
Second, the definition of gasoline lists fuels that are excluded
from the definition. As part of restructuring the fuel tax statutes, the 2021
legislation removed from the list of excluded fuels a certain type of
aviation fuel and instead created an exemption that achieved the same
effect as the exclusion. In doing so, the legislation also inadvertently
removed from the definition of gasoline another type of aviation fuel
that remains subject to tax at a special rate specifically prescribed by
statute for this fuel. This bill adds aviation fuel back to the definition of
gasoline so that it is clear that the nonexempt fuel continues to be
subject to the tax.
