On Monday’s Houston Matters: For all the attention on proposed new voting restrictions under consideration in the Texas Legislature, we really don't know what a final bill will entail. That's because, after the state Senate in early April passed its bill in the middle of the night, last week the Texas House elections committee gutted that bill and replaced it with its own language – again, passed late at night with no public input. News 88.7 politics and government reporter Andrew Schneider updates us on the status of the legislation.

Also this hour: Houstonians vent about their pet peeves about life here. And we get an update on Houston sports.
