Bill to Increase Ohio Race Tax in Rules Committee Hands COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 14. — A bill that would increase the tax on pari-mutuel wagering at Ohio tracks is in the hands of the rules committee in the House of Representatives for assignment on the House calendar. Sideline observers give the measure little chance of becoming law since the State Legislature hopes to conclude business June 23. Tax collected from pari-mutuHI wagering at county fairs would be re- turned to the agricultural societies, according to an amendment added to the measure by the House Taxation Committee.
