Bill Cassidy to be sworn in to U.S. Senate today

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

*Senator-elect Bill Cassidy will be sworn in today as the newest member of the United States Senate.  He will take on his new role on Capitol Hill this month after beating incumbent Mary Landrieu in a stiff runoff election last month.

*The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is still looking for a person of interest in a deadly Lake Charles shooting that happened early Monday morning near a nightclub on East Prien Lake Road.  We will tell you what we know about the investigation.

*The Mardi Gras party gets started tonight with 12th Night at the Lake Charles Civic Center!  More than 60 krewes will take part in the extravaganza starting at 7:00 P.M. and you're invited to be a part of it.

*A high profile fight over payday lending will likely not be repealed in the state's 2015 legislative session.  Find out why and what's being done to regulate the practices of the industry.

*We've got some weather changes on the way, including even colder temperatures and increased rain chances for the weekend.  Don't miss Ben Terry's extended forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
