Behind the Headlines

Congressional coal support, proposed DUI limit and Salt Lake Valley homeless shelters (3/17/17)


Rep. Jason Chaffetz and Sen. Mike Lee propose legislation to curb EPA regulations on Utah coal-power plants. The Salt Lake Area Restaurant Association asks Gov. Gary Hebert to veto a bill that would lower the legal blood-alcohol limit for drivers. And residents of South Salt Lake and West Valley City confront Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams over proposed locations for a new homeless shelter.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Emma Penrod and Matthew Piper, columnist Robert Gehrke and 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 or tune in to KCPW or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
