Good Wednesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*This morning U.S. Senator David Vitter will host an open house at his Lake Charles office. He will join us first on Sunrise to talk about a new waterway infrastructure bill he filed and how it could help flood protection projects in the state.
*Two LCPD officers and a K-9 unit are honored for their roles in last week's triple homicide. Find out how the primary suspect in the deadly shootings was tracked down and arrested.
*Arguments on the federal Defense of Marriage Act start in the U.S. Supreme Court. At issue today is section three, which defines the term "marriage" under federal law as a legal union between one man and one woman.
*A three month test period for experimental LED lights on the I-10 Calcasieu River bridge in Lake Charles is a success. Find out where DOTD goes from here.
*A brother and sister duo in Sulphur is speaking out about a disease threatening their lives - a disease with no cure and no medication to treat it. I'll share the story of Sam and Sydni Dupre, living with Friedreich's Ataxia.
