Harris County's $2.5 billion bond vote


Thirteen days from the anniversary of Hurricane Harvey, which is now being called the most costly storm in American history at $125 billion dollars in damage.

To limit the loss from future disasters voters are being asked to approve a $2.5 billion dollar bond proposal to strengthen flood control infrastructure across Harris County.

Ballots will be cast exactly one year after Harvey made land-fall and by all indications the measure is drawing broad support but also, a smattering of opposition.   Is there enough specific detail in this proposal about how the money will be spent?

Panelists: Jessica Colon - Republican strategist, Nyanza Moore - progressive commentator and attorney, Bob Price - Associate Editor Breitbart Texas, Graig Jackson - Professor TSU Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Bill King - columnist, businessman and former Kemah mayor, Tony Diaz- Chicano activist and educator, join Greg Groogan to discuss topics of the week.
