Louisiana tax incentives attracting more movies

Good Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at some of our top stories on today's Sunrise:

*Louisiana's tax incentives are continuously drawing more major film crews to the state.  This morning we'll go to the scene of "Left Behind" that brought fire and explosions near the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge.

*They call it a "boat graveyard" and residents in one Lake Charles neighborhood want to know what can be done about it.  We'll hear from those concerned about old boats piling up near their homes.

*The state appeal court in Lake Charles says it will not give Brandon Scott Lavergne a rehearing.  He pleaded guilty last year to murdering ULL student Mickey Shunick and another woman in 1999.

*In Washington, the debate continues today on whether or not to strike Syria.  Lawmakers are hoping to make a decision next week on involving U.S. military.

Make it a Sunrise day!
