On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: A pipe manufacturer in Baytown wants a temporary exemption from tariffs recently imposed by the Trump administration. Borusan Mannesmann submitted an application for the exemption last month. Joel Johnson, the company’s CEO, tells Houston Matters producer Maggie Martin why his company submitted the application, what's at stake for his company, and how Baytown might benefit.

Also this hour: We discuss Texas’ many remaining Confederate monuments. Then, every few months or so, we give you the opportunity to vent. It could be something about Houston — like traffic or the weather. We invite our listeners to share their pet peeves about life here in Greater Houston. And there's lots to do in Houston — especially during the summer, but it can get expensive pretty quickly. We learn some inexpensive and free things to do.
