Boustany on Iraq, flight grounded, worker zone update

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

*This morning, the U.S. seems closer to action in Iraq, but no official word yet.  President Obama met with his national security team last night and is said to be considering sending nearly 200 soldiers to Baghdad.  We're following the latest developments and will also hear from U.S. Congressman Charles Boustany of Louisiana about his take on the situation.

*A United Airlines jet bound for Houston from Newark, New Jersey is diverted to Lake Charles.  Find out why they made this unexpected stop.

*Developers of that temporary worker housing project in Carlyss will be asking for a zoning exception today.  This comes after the board approved a lease last week.  Find out about the re-vote set for this worker village.

*20 years ago today, O.J. Simpson was thrust into the national spotlight as news crews provided live coverage of the low speed chase across Los Angeles.  We'll talk about the trial of the century and where Simpson is today.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking a small chance for some isolated showers today.  He'll tell us where we could see the rain and also cover the latest information on twin tornadoes that left a path of destruction in parts of Nebraska.

Make it a Sunrise day!
