‘A lot easier than property tax relief’

Legislators who attended new Gov. Jim Risch’s inaugural ceremony today were buzzing afterward about Risch’s property tax relief talk, and the possibility of a special session this summer on the topic. House Speaker Bruce Newcomb, a rancher from Burley, noted that he’s been castrating calves on his ranch, and sported a bandaged finger as a result. “In my life I’ve probably done 10,000 calves,” Newcomb said, “and it’s a lot easier than property tax relief.”
