On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: Woodlands-based Chevron Phillips Chemical has signed a deal with Qatar Petroleum to develop an $8 billion petrochemical plant along the Gulf Coast that would make mostly plastics. And there are many other projects like these in various stages of development in and around Greater Houston – all taking advantage of an increased natural gas supply in Texas. We learn why projects like these are significant for the region.

Also this hour: We discuss the latest developments in politics and government in our weekly political roundup. Plus, we learn how local law enforcement agencies are seeking to overcome language barriers in many multilingual communities.

And we visit the Prairie View Cricket Complex, soon to be one of the largest cricket fields in the country.
