It’s a new year, Houston. And that means some new federal, state and local laws have taken effect this week. We’ll learn about them as we talk with South Texas College of Law Professor Matthew Festa on this edition of Houston Matters.

Also: we explore the year ahead in business in Houston with KUHF’s Andrew Schneider.

Then: we consider The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in this week’s Houston news with Off the Kuff political blogger Charles Kuffner, Manor of Speaking host Ernie Manouse, and Houston Chronicle Senior Editor and Columnist Kyrie O’Connor.

Plus: we meet a Houstonian who’s creating and selling Houston neighborhood t-shirts.

And with the film August Osage County coming to Houston theaters next week, we’ll hear from writer and actor Tracy Letts, who wrote the screenplay and the original play on which it’s based. Letts spent part of his childhood in Texas with a family that he admits partially inspired some of the characters in the film and play.
