Proposed bill hopes to take sting out of property tax increases

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

*Another bill making its way through the legislature is aimed at taking the sting out of sudden property tax increases, like the one that hit many Calcasieu Parish homeowners.

*It's air quality awareness week and state environmental leaders are calling on all of us to make some small changes in our every day routines. We'll have a live interview on local efforts this morning.

*Five-year-old Layton Stroud died in February from complications with a brain tumor. But the twists and turns of this story are something you really have to hear and see to believe. I'll have the story in a special Healthcast.

*We have several traffic notes for you this morning with road closures today. Find out if you'll need to allow some extra time on your commute.

Make it a Sunrise day!
