It’s time again for our weekly political round up and analysis of national, state and local political stories. On this edition of Houston Matters, we discuss the latest on the GOP Senate healthcare bill, the Supreme Court reviving parts of President Trump’s travel ban, and other developments in global, national, and state politics — all with an eye for how they might affect Greater Houston.

This week, our guests are Elizabeth Simas from the University of Houston, Mark Jones from Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, and Andrew Schneider, News 88.7’s politics and government reporter.

Also this hour, every time Greater Houston dodges a tropical storm or hurricane, does it make Houstonians more apathetic when the next one is on the horizon? We discuss that question with a behavioral psychologist. And the Houston trio Ancient Cat Society performs from Houston Public Media’s Geary Studio.

Houston Matters offers a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.
