Happy Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at today's headlines:

*Several items were on the ballot over the weekend across Southwest Louisiana.  We'll recap the election results.

*State lawmakers have reached the midpoint of the legislative session and this week they hope they will see progress made on the budget discussion.

*One of the college friends charged with lying to investigators regarding the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings faces a detention hearing today.

*It's another cool morning, but the weather pattern is changing again!  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have your forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
