Senate GOP pushes new health bill, Hatch weighs in on Trump Jr. meeting, Utah District 3 candidates debate, mixed reaction on schools initiative (7/14/17)

Senate Republicans release a revision of their health care bill, gaining some conservative votes but still lacking support from moderates. Utah’s U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch says the story of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian national is “overblown.” Republican candidates for Utah’s 3rd Congressional District have a hard time distinguishing themselves from one another at their first debate. And a ballot initiative aiming to increase education funding receives mixed reactions from the public.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Courtney Tanner and Benjamin Wood, Washington bureau chief Thomas Burr and columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Each Friday morning, stream “Behind the Headlines” online or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
