Texas Standard For July 30, 2018
Retired Texas teachers say they feel let down by a vote that could mean lower pension checks. We’ll explore the impact and the next steps. Plus, a multi-million dollar settlement involving a Houston-area refinery accused of doing too much polluting. We’ll look at the legal moves that made it happen. We’ll also explore the story of a small town principal jailed for murder — and the questionable evidence that put him there. When wildfires pop up across Texas… it’s often volunteer firefighters that are there first to put out the flames. We’ll look at why many volunteer departments are struggling. And… keep an eye on your cacti. The insects that could destroy your xeriscape, yuck up your yucca, and obliterate your agave. That and more — today on the Texas Standard.
