No re-election for Hughes, bad air may kill and Utah lawmaker wants to change water rules


Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes announces that he won’t seek re-election, stoking speculation that he will run for Utah governor in 2020. A new Harvard study adds to the growing body of evidence that air pollution, even in small amounts, can be deadly. And Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, proposes legislation to remove cities’ ability to regulate watersheds.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune columnist Paul Rolly and reporters Emma Penrod, Brian Maffly and Lee Davidson join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
