OHIO LEGISLATORS GET AGREEMENT ON TAX EXTENSION FOR STADIUM

     "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).
