Deadline day in Washington, D.C. and parts of SWLA

Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what we have in store for the last Sunrise of 2012...where has the year gone?!

*There is still no deal to avoid the fiscal cliff and today is the deadline.  We will have a report this morning from Washington to see what the Senate will be doing to get back to work this morning on a last minute deal.

*In Calcasieu Parish, today is the last day for residents to pay their property tax without facing any interest or penalties.  If you can only make partial payments, we will tell you how that works.

*One deal that has been struck just in time before 2013 is an extension of the 2008 Farm Bill that expired in October.  You will hear why a delay could have caused milk prices to skyrocket to as much as $8/gallon.

*More than two dozen new laws take effect tomorrow in Louisiana.  From shortening voting hours to a ban on some sex offenders in public libraries, we will highlight some of the changes.

*80 percent of those making New Year's resolutions fail.  Local counselor, Scott Riviere, will join us for a live interview on how to successfully follow through with your resolution in 2013.

*We will open up the Sunrise Pet Shop to introduce you to an animal in need of adoption:)

Plus, Ben Terry is tracking the next weather system that will bring rain to SWLA.  Find out how your New Year's Eve forecast is shaping up!

Make it a Sunrise day!
