Snake-eater - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Snake-eater

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7 News at Noon.

Despite early fears, the final version of the state budget did not have deep cuts to higher education. KPLC's Scottie Hunter will have reaction from McNeese State University officials. You can also read a statement from the school HERE.

Lawmakers have also agreed to let law enforcement agencies automatically scan license plates. What is the reasoning behind this legislation, and what will it mean for you? We'll have the story at noon, and you can learn more HERE.

If you can't beat them, eat them! A man, upset that a 6-foot long snake ate his baby birds takes an unusual step to make up for it. Find out what he does at noon.

Plus, we'll check out the latest smart glasses, a 360-degree camera you can fit in your pocket, and other virtual reality gadgets.
   
In weather, look for more scattered showers and thunderstorms today. Some of those storms could produce heavy downpours and frequent lightning, and it looks as though that will continue right into the weekend. Just how much rain can we expect? Meteorologist Ben Terry will let us know during his live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, if you're not near a TV at noon, you can watch us live on our mobile apps for Apple or Android devices.

Ben and I hope you have a good day and a wonderful, safe weekend!
