Behind the Headlines: Utah Access Plus, opening for Chaffetz and mayoral debate(10/9/15)


A legislative hearing on the latest Medicaid expansion plan, Utah Access Plus, draws mixed reviews from health providers and the Utah residents it would affect most. U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, stays the course on his bid for House speaker, even as the front-runner, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, drops out. Salt Lake City mayoral candidates spar again on homelessness, the economy and public safety. And Salt Lake County cracks down on puppy mills.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Tribune reporters Thomas Burr and Robert Gehrke, government and politics editor Dan Harrie and editorial writer George Pyle join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the week’s top news stories.

Tune in to KCPW or Utah Public Radio at 9 a.m. for the live broadcast.
