On Friday’s Houston Matters: As Scott Pruitt steps down from the Environmental Protection Agency, attention now turns to the future of the agency and its policies. What does Pruitt’s departure mean for EPA rules that impact Houston most?

Also this hour: With the impending retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the U.S. Supreme Court, some are wondering if Roe v. Wade, the landmark case for abortion rights, might be overturned when a new — presumably conservative — justice is appointed by President Trump. But how much does the Supreme Court really affect abortion law? Or does the battle over abortion rights take place more often in state legislatures, regardless of the high court’s makeup? 

Then, our panel of non-experts discusses The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of the week’s news. And Houston actor Tamarie Cooper talks about 21 years of hosting her annual, full-scale musical comedy show.
