The New Hampshire House of Representatives March 28 soundly rejected the expansion of gambling by a wide margin even though both supporters and opponents predicted that the vote would be razor thin.

The State of New Hampshire has repealed the onerous 10% tax on gambling winnings that drove bettors away from racetracks and caused a multi-million dollar drop in the Thoroughbred simulcast handle.
