Good Monday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*A bill that would put a new medicine used for treating heroin overdoses in the hands of first responders is up for debate in Baton rouge today. It's called "Narcan" and it can reportedly prevent deaths from drug overdoses.
*More debate over common core education standards this week. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal says he is in support of the high standards, but believes parents have legitimate concerns over the changes. Find out what he's saying about new education benchmarks.
*In a bizarre story over the weekend, a Lake Charles man is arrested after firing a gun outside the Civic Center - then throwing it in the lake and jumping in. We'll tell you what led to that series of events and the charges one man is facing today.
*Meteorologist Ben Terry is telling us we fortunately avoided some severe weather over the weekend, but that system is continuing to affect our neighbors to the east. He'll have the pinpoint forecast that continues to include a chance for rain, as well as some cooler temperatures.
*Do you have extra love to give? You don't want to miss our Sunrise Pet Shop, featuring a homeless animal in need of love and a forever family.
