Legislature pokes back at Utah governor; ballot likely to include medical marijuana, Medicaid expansion; San Juan wants Recapture Canyon road

The power struggle between Gary Herbert and the Legislature intensifies with lawmakers overriding two of the Utah governor’s vetoes. Four of six citizen initiatives likely will end up on the ballot in November, including one to expand Medicaid and another to legalize medical marijuana. And San Juan County claims a right of way through Recapture Canyon, the site of ancient archaeological ruins and of a 2014 protest ATV ride.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Brian Maffly, government and politics editor Dan Harrie and columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
