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

*The government reopens its doors today after a battle-weary Congress approves a bipartisan measure to end a 16-day partial shutdown.  Find out how Louisiana's congressional delegates voted.

*There was big drama on the House floor during last night's vote.  A stenographer was hauled out after screaming during the vote.  Hear what she said when she grabbed the microphone.

*There's good news for Louisiana's economy from economic forecaster, Dr. Loren Scott.  He says the Lake Charles area is set to do even better than other cities in the state in 2014.  Find out his predictions for a growing economy.

*We have an update this morning on a story out of Baton Rouge that had a lot of people talking. The substitute teacher that was caught on camera cursing at her middle school class is now totally off the sub list.

*Ready for more weather changes?  Meteorologist Ben Terry says they're on the way!  Find out if you'll need a light jacket or poncho this weekend in his pinpoint forecast.
