On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: Texas voters are casting their ballots in today's primary runoffs. Today's winners will appear on the ballot in November. We take a closer look at the contests to watch for Greater Houston. And pressure's mounting for Gov. Abbott to call a special session to address school shootings. It comes as the governor holds a series of meetings in Austin to discuss how to prevent future tragedies.

Also this hour: We discuss the ethical questions raised by research on human embryos in conjunction with an upcoming panel discussion on the topic at Rice. Then, as another hurricane season approaches — and the first one since Harvey — Michael Hagerty goes shopping for an emergency kit with Harris County Judge Ed Emmett.

And we take a look at a summer full of diverse musical acts coming to Houston.
