On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: We get an update on severe weather overnight across the region.

Also this hour: Texas government entities are no longer allowed to mandate masks, Gov. Greg Abbott announced an executive order on Tuesday.

The move came at roughly the same hour Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo formally announced the county's COVID threat level was being downgraded. We discuss those developments and more in our weekly political roundup.

And, with the Houston Summer Auto Show happening this week, we'll discuss how the auto industry has changed over the past year.
