Voters repealed the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, Sylvester Turner and Bill King are headed to a runoff in the mayoral race, and voters across Greater Houston and Texas cast their ballots on issues like property taxes, term limits for city council members and county bond elections for road projects. On this edition of Houston Matters, we take a closer look at the results from Election 2015 with University of Houston political scientist Brandon Rottinghaus.

Also: We take a closer look at something called the Tort Claims Act and examine why it’s still relevant today.

Then, our gaggle of Houston food writers gives us suggestions of the best places to take out-of-town visitors to eat in Greater Houston, in the latest installment of The Full Menu.

Plus: Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal explains a new indicator called the “Economic Anxiety Index” and what it means for Houston.
