The U.S. Supreme Court issued the last of its opinions for this term on Monday. Many of the High Court’s decisions this term carry big implications for the nation — and for the state of Texas in particular.

Among the highlights: the court determined bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional, that health care subsidies acquired via the federal exchange should continue, just like those acquired via state exchanges, and the nation’s highest court deemed a controversial drug used in executions could continue to be administered to death row inmates.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we talk with area constitutional law scholars about these and other major rulings and how they’ll impact our lives here in Houston.  

Also this hour: We turn to our gaggle of foodies for advice on finding Greater Houston’s best cups of coffee, in this month’s edition of The Full Menu.

And: Houston author and parent Chris Bridge has written a book called Read to Me. It’s a children’s book about parents reading to their kids, designed for parents to read to their kids. Houston Matters’ Edel Howlin will talk with Bridge about reading about reading to encourage reading.
