Four people still holding on in the cold to win an apartment

Good Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at some of the stories you will see on today's Sunrise:

*It's a chilly morning, but that's not stopping four Lake Charles residents from holding onto doorknobs outside a local apartment complex with the goal of winning a free apartment for a year.  We'll take you there live this morning to see how they're doing on day two of this challenge to see who can stand the longest.

*Three Louisiana lawmakers, including Sen. Dan "Blade" Morrish of Jennings and Sen. Ronnie Johns of Sulphur are heading to Nashville to talk about the impact of rate hikes in the federal flood insurance program on homeowners and businesses.  Find out what's in store at the National Conference of Insurance Legislators.

*Meantime, efforts to delay implementation of changes in the federal flood insurance program have run into roadblocks on both sides of Capitol Hill.  

*The U.S. Supreme Court refuses to block the Texas abortion law.  The vote was close - 5-4 - to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

Make it a Sunrise day!
