Sen. Vitter and Rep. Cassidy on Sunrise, plus sushi with SOWELA!

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

*U.S. Senator David Vitter is hosting the first of three field briefings in Louisiana that examine potential impacts of proposed EPA rules that could have a huge impact on economic development in Southwest Louisiana.  Sen. Vitter will join us for a live interview on today's Sunrise, discussing this EPA fight, as well as immigration reform.

*U.S. Representative Bill Cassidy will also join us this morning for a live interview discussing his push to repeal and replace Obamacare.  Rep. Cassidy will also discuss flood insurance reforms that affect thousands of Louisiana homeowners.

*Shark warning signs are put up in a Slidell neighborhood after a child was bitten by a shark.  How big is the danger?  We'll take a look at what experts are saying.

*The culinary crew from SOWELA will join us this morning to share a recipe for homemade sushi.  If you thought it was too tricky to try at home, they'll make it easy for you!

Make it a Sunrise day!
