On Tuesday’s show: We learn about opposition to Senate Bill 147, which would prevent companies and citizens from China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia from purchasing land in Texas. Protestors demonstrated against it Monday at Houston City Hall.

And Houston BCycle, the city’s decade-old bike-sharing program, is in financial trouble. Could METRO join forces with it to save the service?

Also this hour: We discuss issues of interest to Houston's LGBTQ community and consider what the Texas Legislature might do related to those issues this session.

Then, buying a car in our dealer-model world is challenging for a lot of Houstonians. It may also be a different experience today than it was even a year ago. Ahead of this week's Houston Auto Show, we find out why.

And actress Lili Taylor and Houston native Suzanne Bocanegra talk about their collaboration on Friday's one-night-only performance at Rice's Moody Center.
