His net worth may have dropped by some $700,000, but Sen. Jim Risch still ranked as the 18th wealthiest member of Congress, according to rankings released today by The Hill.
Risch's minimum net worth came in at $19.1 million.
One reason for the decline: a home equity loan of at least $250,000.
The bulk of Risch's wealth is in real estate, according to the Hill: the state's junior senator has at least $16 million worth of farm and ranch land in Ada and Canyon counties.
Here's a link to The Hill's writeup on Risch.
Risch is no stranger to these lists. In 2011, Roll Call listed Risch as the 16th wealthiest member of Congress, based on net worth of $19.78 million.
