Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio Some Senate Republicans are chomping at the bit to take an ax to those big property tax hikes.
It's a "go slow" approach from House Speaker Greg Curtis, who says he is leery of tying the hands of local governments, where most property taxes are set.
"They're elected and they can represent their constituents as they see appropriate. You know, we just have the responsibility of ... looking at the state portion," Curtis said.
But he says he can envision a cut in the portion of the property taxes set at the state level, to the tune of about $300 million.
