The Bears Ears, New Developments with BYU Rape & More On Behind The Headlines

May 20, 2016

 

The Utah Legislature opposes the creation of a Bears Ears monument in a resolution passed Wednesday. An audio recording of a Utah County deputy sheriff reveals he wanted an alleged rape victim at BYU to be investigated by the Honor Code Office. The Bureau of Land Management discusses how to preserve the Bonneville Salt Flats. And most Utah schools aren't worried by federal rules requiring restroom accommodations for transgender students.
