Analysis shows that millions of dollars of COVID relief went to TestUtah for coronavirus testing. Petitioners ask Gov. Spencer Cox to veto a bill creating a bank of funds for projects of the Utah Inland Port. And with vaccine appointments opening up to Utahns 16 and older next week, what do kids, pregnant women and those who have already been infected need to know?

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Erin Alberty, Andy Larsen and Taylor Stevens, 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.
