On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: The Houston City Council is delaying a vote on an agreement with the EPA to curb sewage spills that violate the federal Clean Water Act. If approved, the agreement would cost $2 billion over 15 years. We get the latest from City Hall.

Plus, we remember retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who died Tuesday at the age of 99. And we get an update on the impact repeated threats of ICE raids may have on Houston's immigrant population.

Also this hour: From President Trump’s inflammatory "Go Back" tweets, to a delay in Robert Mueller’s testimony, we discuss the latest news in our weekly political roundup.

Then, we hear from two generations of NASA flight directors — both from the same family — in the latest installment of Houston Public Media's series Moonwalk.

And, we remember the Houston Herricanes, a women's pro football team that played here in the 1970s.
