On Wednesday’s edition of Houston Matters: State lawmakers are in Houston to learn what Texas can do to reduce damages from future storms like Harvey. News 88.7 politics and government reporter Andrew Schneider will tell us what was discussed. And we learn about Arkema’s response to a lawsuit brought against them after Harvey.

Also this hour: It's time again for the Houston Matters weekly political roundup with analysis of national, state, and local political stories with an eye to how it all might affect Houston and Texas.

Then, local food writers discuss their favorite places to eat outdoors in this month's installment of The Full Menu.
