Political Roundup: Six Months After Harvey, And Gun Control Debate

Our political experts discuss the latest national, state, and local political stories with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.

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 they might affect Houston and Texas.

Today, we talk about area politicians’ efforts, promises, and deliveries six months after Harvey. Then, we look at the ongoing national conversation about gun violence and the politics that surrounds it. And we review a number of developments at the U.S. Supreme Court and examine voter turnout during early voting leading up to next month’s primary.

Our panel of experts this week includes: Jay Aiyer from the Texas Southern University and co-host of Houston Public Media’s Party Politics podcast, Houston Chronicle columnist Erica Grieder.
