Behind the Headlines

Affordable housing, bail reform and COVID-19 ‘endgame’


The 2021 legislative session ends Friday, and lawmakers are rushing to get their work done.

House and Senate leaders announced a $50 million investment to support affordable housing and homeless services. Lawmakers also repealed last year’s reform that overhauled the cash bail system in Utah. And, in the session’s waning days, the COVID-19 “endgame” bill aims to bring a halt to the pandemic — through legislation.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Bethany Rodgers and Taylor Stevens, along with editorial page editor George Pyle, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories. Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
