On Tuesday’s show: How are state lawmakers addressing affordable housing this legislative session? We discuss with Joshua Fechter of the Texas Tribune.
Also this hour: A proposed bill in the legislature would give the state control of the Harris County Flood Control District.

We talk through it with Texas Monthly senior editor Michael Hardy and Rice University political fellow Mark Jones.
Then, local storm chaser and photographer Adam Kyle Jackson talks about the challenges of his job.
