Texas Capitol State Flag Politics - BannerIt’s time again for our weekly political roundup and analysis of national, state and local political stories.

We discuss everything from the Syria attack and reaction from the global community, the “nuclear option” employed by the Senate to confirmed Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch with just a simple majority, and the shakeup in the National Security Council.

Also we look at the state budget and how the House and the Senate plan to reconcile, and the House’s passage of Houston’s pension reform bill.

Today, we talk with Christine LeVeaux-Haley, a political science professor from the University of Houston, Jay Aiyer, assistant professor of political science at Texas Southern University and co-host of Houston Public Media’s new podcast Party Politics, and Andrew Schneider, politics and government reporter for News 88.7.
