Electors’ votes, backlash over shelter sites, air-quality woes and Swallow’s court setback (12/23/16)

Utah electors unanimously cast their votes for President-elect Donald Trump. Salt Lake City Council members receive threats after the announcement of the four new homeless service-center sites. Utah falls short of EPA air-quality standards. And attempts to dismiss the case against former Utah Attorney General John Swallow are denied by a state judge.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Robert Gehrke, Tom Harvey and Emma Penrod, as well as government and politics editor Dan Harrie, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Each Friday morning, stream “Behind the Headlines” on KCPW.org or tune in to KCPW or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
