OHIO LEGISLATORS GET AGREEMENT ON TAX EXTENSION FOR STADIUM
Published July 12, 1995
"A legislative compromise" on a financing package to extend a sin tax to pay for part of the renovation of Cleveland Stadium was reached by OH legislators last night. In this morning's PLAIN DEALER, Benjamin Marrison reports that lawmakers agreed to give voters the right to repeal the extension of the tax via ballot measure if over 30,000 signatures are collected within 30 days of the extension. Under the bill, the tax on cigarettes and alcohol, currently paying for Cleveland's Gateway stadiums, will be extended for 20 years (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 7/12).
