State Attorney General to be guest on Sunrise

Happy Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell will be a guest on today's Sunrise.  He will be talking about protecting you from scams, recovering millions of dollars from shoddy work companies and price gouging from drug companies.

*Should city workers in Lake Charles get a raise?  Many of them receive minimum wage for their work right now, but there's a proposal to raise it.  Find out why it's not looking promising right now.

*The state's murder rate, particularly among African-American men, is getting national attention after a new report.  It ranks Louisiana at the sixth highest slot for homicides of black men in 2011.  We'll also tell you about the connection between the alleged murderers and their victims.

*The Jindal administration is considering tweaks to the 2012 law that makes it tougher for teachers to get certain types of job protection.  We'll tell you how this expected to be handled at the legislative session that begins in March.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry is using the word "sleet" in the forecast today for some parts of Southwest Louisiana.  He'll tell you who's under a winter weather advisory today and whether or not this will impact your day.

Make it a Sunrise day!
