Tax My Meat Pete still fighting for state government handouts

Republican Assembly Minority Leader Pete Goicoechea continues to twist the knife in Gov. Sandoval’s back, telling the Las Vegas Sun on Tuesday that if the governor’s budget proposal is approved without tax hikes, then rural counties would have to pay for their own restaurant inspections and other services which the state currently provides to rural counties for free.
