On Thursday’s Houston Matters: A sweeping flood projects bill heads to the desk of Gov. Greg Abbott. The Texas Legislature passed the measure establishing new funds for grants and loans to local governments, now almost two years out from Hurricane Harvey. We learn more about the contents of the bill.

Also this hour: We talk with Houston Millennials about why many of them are are not interested in buying a house.

Then, David Mitchell of the organization Patients for Affordable Drugs discusses how his own battle with cancer has informed his quest for lower prescription prices.

And comedian Matt Braunger tells us about some of the craziest advice he’s given in his not-so-serious advice podcast (it involved a possum), and about the importance of failure.
