Legislature tackles veto of transgender sports bill, outdoor trade show returns, and Native Americans in boarding schools

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) The sun sets on the Utah Capitol on Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2022.

The Legislature reconvenes to try to override Gov. Spencer Cox’s veto of a bill barring transgender girls from female school sports. The Outdoor Retailer trade show is headed back to Utah despite a boycott threat from some well-known brands. And an in-depth report examines how Utah boarding schools stripped Native American students of their culture.

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

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at kcpw.org, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast. Join the live conversation by calling 801-355-TALK.
