Utah state senators pass a bill to overhaul the Utah Transit Authority, starting with its name. The Utah House votes to require state universities to share allegations of sexual assault with police, regardless of the survivors' wishes. And state officials plan an inland port in Salt Lake City's Northwest Quadrant, but the city expected to have greater input in that decision.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Bill Dentzer and Benjamin Wood, senior managing editor Matt Canham and editorial page editor George Pyle join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
