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.
