Behind the Headlines

Election audit, Utah Lake makeover and Parleys quarry

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Ballots are sorted for scanning at the Salt Lake County offices in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2020.

Utah lawmakers push for an election integrity audit — despite a lack of evidence of fraud. A project that aims to dredge Utah Lake to build and develop new islands gets wait-listed for financing by federal regulators. And a major limestone quarry is proposed for Parleys Canyon.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Brian Maffly and Bethany Rodgers, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
