Utahn released from Venezuelan prison, 3 initiatives make the ballot and Eagle Mountain to get a Facebook data center

After spending nearly two years in a Venezuelan prison, Josh Holt and his wife arrive home in the Beehive State. A final certification shows that three of four citizen initiatives are on their way to the November ballot. And Facebook plans to put a data center in Eagle Mountain, enticed by a $150 million tax break.

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