Good Wednesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*Today, a New Orleans area representative will introduce a bill to ban teens 16 and under from using tanning beds in Louisiana. We'll take a look at that bill and another one set to be a hot topic involving human trafficking laws in the state.
*Applications are being accepted for the Gift of Hope, the state's only charitable program awarding a free in vitro fertilization to a couple that cannot conceive otherwise. We'll have a live interview with fertility doctor, John Storment, about how to apply and how successful the program has been in helping couples achieve the dream of a family.
*New tax proposals on the April 5th ballot in Calcasieu Parish are the subject of last night's police jury meeting. Two of the tax items are renewals for the criminal justice tax and the mosquito control tax.
*A lingerie store in Louisiana is accepting most credit cards, as well as the EBT card - that is the electronic benefits transfer or food stamps card. While some don't think the benefits should be used on lingerie, we'll tell you why there's actually nothing illegal about it.
*Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us we are in store for a cooldown. He's tracking the weather system that will be moving into Southwest Louisiana and bringing with it much cooler temperatures.
