Georgia Referendum B was on the November 7, 2006 statewide ballot in Georgia as a legislatively-referred state statute, where it was overwhelmingly approved.[1]

Referendum B expanded a property tax exemption that was already in place for some veterans' organizations to include organizations of veterans that exist "for the purpose of refurbishing and operating historic military aircraft acquired from the federal government and other sources, making such aircraft airworthy, and putting such aircraft on display to the public for educational purposes."
