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

This week, we discuss how the New Year will bring new laws, newly elected legislative officials, and a critical mid-term election season.

Our panel of political experts this week includes Nancy Sims, political analyst at Pierpont Communications and lecturer at the University of Houston's political science department, David Branham, professor of political science at the University of Houston-Downtown, and Jay Aiyer, assistant professor of political science at Texas Southern University and co-host of Houston Public Media's Party Politics podcast.
