Abortion changes, LA movies and drug disposal

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

*A new proposal on abortion is making its way through the state legislature this week.  It would require women seeking abortions to get a pamphlet detailing the possible psychological effects of the procedure.

*The Louisiana film industry is now surpassing Los Angeles when it comes to the number of movies shot in the area.  We'll have the latest numbers to show Louisiana's draw for locations and talent.

*Do you need to dispose of old prescription drugs?  There are take back day events across the area this weekend that can allow you to safely throw out expired or unwanted prescription drugs.

*Congressman Charles Boustany will be in Southwest Louisiana today to address the Chamber Southwest.  He plans to hit on key issues like Obamacare, trade and energy. 

Make it a Sunrise day!
