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 everything from Pres. Trump’s proposed budget, to the DACA debate in the Senate, to Astrodome renovation approval by Harris County Commissioners Court.

Our panel of political experts this week includes Brandon Rottinghaus, professor of political science at the University of Houston and co-host of Houston Public Media’s Party Politics podcast, and Mark Jones, political science fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.
