It's a wonderful Wednesday morning in the KPLC 7Newsroom!  Britney Glaser here with a preview of some of the stories we're covering on today's Sunrise:

*Later today, the state's top education board is expected to approve changes that could impact accreditation, school librarians and counselors.  Hear from CPSB Superintendent Wayne Savoy about what he says about protecting counselors' jobs.

*Also today, President Obama will announce his proposal to combat gun violence.  The president will hold an event at the White House just before noon today to offer a comprehensive plan to reduce gun tragedies.  We'll have a preview of that announcement.

*Many local veterans say they are upset over conditions at the VA Clinic in Lake Charles.  Find out what they refer to as unacceptable conditions.
