On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: Houston's firefighter union is suing Mayor Sylvester Turner and a city council member, accusing the two officials of improperly using public resources to oppose a ballot initiative regarding firefighter pay. We learn more about the suit.

Also this hour: After news that a St. Louis Uber driver recorded and posted video of several hundred of his passengers without their consent, we discuss the legal issues related to who can record you and where — with or without your knowledge.

Then, the Trump administration has proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act. How might those changes affect endangered species in Texas and the oil and gas industry?

And Houston filmmaker David Roy talks about his prequel to the wonderfully awful movie Manos: The Hands of Fate.
