High school games at the Dome in jeopardy over Ugandan refugee

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

*A measure is on the table in Baton Rouge to ban the Louisiana High School Athletic Association from using the Superdome for sports events, unless it allows a Ugandan refugee to play football next school year.  We'll tell you why it's become a battle of age rules versus justice.

*Also on the agenda at the legislative session today: guns, marijuana and honoring members of the military.  We'll have a look ahead.

*More arrests are likely to come, following a multi-agency investigation into drug dealing in Southwest Louisiana.  Find out about the next step with "Operation 27."

*We have a big traffic alert for you this morning to help you plan your week.  One lane on the Atchafalaya Basin bridge will be closed Thursday for road inspections.  We'll have those details.

*Governor Bobby Jindal and DHH Secretary Kathy Kliebert recently announced the "Well Ahead Louisiana" health initiative.  It's to partner schools, businesses and organizations in local communities to take more control over their health.  We'll have Dr. B.J. Foch joining us in the studio this morning to explain how you can get involved.

Make it a Sunrise day!
