Good Wednesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*An overturned truck full of frozen chickens catches fire near the Jennings-Evangeline exit on I-10 westbound. Louisiana State Police are working to clear the crash site, but advise the lane may be closed for the next six hours. We have a photographer on the way to the scene to bring us live video of the wreck.
*The wait could soon be over for the opening of the Golden Nugget Casino-Resort in Lake Charles. Find out when guests can book their rooms in the $700 million facility.
*Tougher rules may be on the way for child care centers and preschool programs in Louisiana. The changes add fingerprint-based criminal background checks for employees and volunteers. Will BESE members vote for or against this proposal? We have a preview of the vote this morning.
*SOWELA Chancellor, Dr. Neil Aspinwall, is our Sunrise guest this morning. He will be talking about the expansion of three in-demand programs equipping students for the workforce and upcoming job opportunities.
