On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: While many Texas voters tend to agree on limiting property taxes and opposing a higher sales tax, there are sharp differences of opinion between older and younger Texans when it comes to other issues. That’s according to new data on the opinions of Texas voters from the University of Houston’s Hobby School of Public Affairs. We take a closer look.

Also this hour: We examine what the escalating U.S.-China trade war could mean for businesses and industries in Greater Houston. Plus, two area scientists discuss how Star Trek has influenced Space City.
