Understanding the health insurance marketplace

Happy, happy Friday to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at some of the stories you can expect to see on today's Sunrise:

*Louisiana has one of the highest numbers of uninsured people in the United States.  KPLC's Erica Bivens will explain how the health insurance marketplace works before it kicks in on October 1st.

*An unused industrial facility in Westlake will be brought back to life thanks to the $100 million Juniper GTL project turning gas to liquids.  Find out what it means for jobs and the economy of Southwest Louisiana.

*The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury approves the sale of liquor across from churches and public libraries.  There are still some restrictions, though, and we will break those down for you.
