Move to cut millions off food stamps

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

*Republicans in Congress have already made a move to cut millions off food stamps.  We'll tell you about the deadline lawmakers are facing on health care, the federal budget and the debt limit.

*Experts say Hurricane Katrina may be to blame for a rare brain-eating amoeba in Louisiana.  A boy was infected with the parasite in St. Bernard Parish last month while playing on a water slide and later died.  Find out why health experts are saying stagnant water connected to Katrina could be the source of the problem.

*Someone is arrested for DWI almost every day by Louisiana State Police Troop D, many being repeat offenders.  We will detail what the DA's office is doing to keep serial drunks off the road.

*Looking for something to do this weekend?  We'll tell you what's happening across Southwest Louisiana, plus have your box office preview of new movies set to be released.

*Lots of weather changes are heading our way.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have your weekend outlook with rain on the way!

Make it a Sunrise day!
