New from overnight: audits on Moss Regional and Rum Distillery

Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*A new state audit report released this morning says it would cost Louisiana $26 million in annual costs and $42 million in one-time expenses to privatize six LSU hospitals, including Moss Regional.  We'll take you deeper inside this report.

*Another audit out this morning involves the Lacassine Sugarcane Mill.  It involves a default to purchase the mill and a lawsuit to settle the defaulted loan.

*We're opening up the Sunrise Pet Shop this morning to introduce you to an animal in need of a new home.

*The latest on the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans last fall: e-mails show there was concern about what the public would hear and changes were made from the CIA's original assessment of who was responsible.

Make it a Sunrise day!
