Deal in the works to end government shutdown - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Deal in the works to end government shutdown

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

*There is hope this morning that Washington may avoid hitting the debt ceiling Thursday.  We'll tell you about a deal that seems to be in the works, but lawmakers still need to jump through several hoops to prevent an historic default.

*State officials continue the investigation into a glitch with food stamp EBT cards.  One woman shopping at Wal-Mart was arrested after she knowingly purchased $700 worth of food on her card that had less than $1 on it.  You'll hear why those trying to scam the system will be held accountable.

*Funeral arrangements have been set for Sherry Langley, the Longville woman who authorities say was shot and killed by her husband.

*If your morning travel plans involve the I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge, plan accordingly!  The eastbound outside lane will be closed from about 8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. for maintenance work.

Make it a Sunrise day!
