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.
