Military cost-of-living pensions to be restored

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

*A bill to do away with previously passed military pension cuts is approved in the Senate with an overwhelming vote.  It already passed the House and now goes to the President's desk.  Once signed, cost of living pension increases will be restored.

*We're cracking open a cold case this morning that goes back to 1991.  It's one of Calcasieu Parish's two "Jane Doe" mysteries.  Lee Peck dives deep into the investigation into the body of a woman found near Vinton more than 20 years ago.

*Louisiana now joins the ranks of states entangled in a marriage equality lawsuit.  Four same-sex couples legally married in other states and the Forum for Equality Louisiana filed the suit in New Orleans, aiming to change Louisiana's marriage laws.

*It's Throwback Thursday and today we are throwing it back to our favorite childhood books.  What is your favorite?  Let us know on the KPLC 7News Sunrise facebook page and we might read your comments on air.

*Allow a little extra time this morning to thaw out your vehicle!  Our temperatures across much of Southwest Louisiana are in the upper 20s, causing some frost.  Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us we are in store for a warm-up today and SUNSHINE!

Make it a Sunrise day!
