Flesh-eating bacteria sickens 4, including 1 in Lake Charles

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

*There's a warning from state health officials about a dangerous type of bacteria lurking in Louisiana's waterways.  Four people have been sickened, including one person from Lake Charles.

*The requirement that businesses provide their workers with health insurance, a key provision in President Obama's sweeping health care law, will be delayed by one year.  Find out what led to that decision.

*It's a new parent's worst nightmare: sudden infant death syndrome or "SIDS," the unexplainable death of a baby under the age of one.  I take you inside a clinical study with the goal of saving more babies with the help of a local neonatologist.

*Early this morning, Texas republicans approved a bill that would limit abortions in the state.  The bill now moves to the house.  Find out what lawmaker Wendy Davis, the woman in the spotlight for an epic filibuster, has to say about the fight.

*SOWELA Chancellor Dr. Neil Aspinwall joins us for an in-studio interview to talk about how the school is expanding to meet the needs of our workforce in the years ahead.

*Rain chances are on the increase as we near the extended holiday weekend.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have your July 4th forecast.
