Fight to raise LA's minimum wage

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

*Several groups who speak for low income families are asking state legislators to raise Louisiana's minimum wage.  They're looking at anywhere from $8.25-$10.10 an hour.  Find out why some business owners and Governor Jindal are saying it could hurt our economy.

*An interesting sight is caught on camera at the beach in Johnson Bayou last night.  We'll show you bioluminescent marine plankton glowing inside the crashing waves.

*Military families could pay more for groceries under the latest Pentagon budget proposal.  It would slash $1 billion of the taxpayer subsidies for commissaries.  We'll tell you how much that would mean each year for a military family.

*There is a fresh conversation on how to carry out the death sentence in Louisiana.  Find out why electrocution is being talked about along with lethal injection.

*It's a sign there could be problems with the Mardi Gras Boardwalk lakefront development in Lake Charles.  The company is now requesting an extension of 120 days to secure financing.

*Rain is going to be a big factor in your day.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have your pinpoint forecast that includes some dropping temperatures and a wet morning.

Make it a Sunrise day!
