Live interview on immigration reform, plus Sunrise cooking!

Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*We have a preview this morning of the budget plan Governor Bobby Jindal will reveal later today and where the cuts will be coming from this year.

*In a special Healthcast report, see how swine experts are looking at sows for fertility advancements in humans.  It's something local researchers with McNeese State University are spearheading.  We'll head back to the farm today to see what they've discovered.

*Immigration reform continues to be a heated debate in national politics.  A small group of Democrats and Republicans is working behind the scenes on a compromise for reform.  But, some lawmakers were upset earlier this week when a White House plan was leaked.  We'll have a live in studio interview with U.S. Senator David Vitter on the topic.

*The storm system that moved through our area is being blamed for a death in East Texas.  Now, officials are checking to see if it was a tornado.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have a look at how the system impacted SWLA as well as a look at our weekend forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
