If you've ever been caught falling asleep on the job, you'll want to see what the Vice President did! That's just one story you'll see this morning on Sunrise. Here's what else we're following.
BIG BUDGET VOTE
Congress will vote today on the deal to cut 38 billion dollars to keep the government running. Was the President's speech on reigning in the deficit persuasive? We'll track this vote.
IMPERIAL COUPLE VISITS DISASTER ZONE
Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko made a surprise visit to two shelters in asahi city. They spoke with evacuees and expressed concern for all victims. It was their first visit to the disaster zone, but not their last.
Former KGMB investigative reporter Matt Levi is back on the case. He's digging up stories for a new show called "Hawaii Investigates" that you can watch on KGMB starting tonight at 6:30. He'll join us at 6:40 to talk about the focus of the first show, the youth correctional facility. An investigation that comes full circle when he tracks down former troubled teens he first interviewed decades ago to see what's become of their lives.
HAWAII FOODBANK RUNNING ON EMPTY
We headed out to the Hawaii Foodbank warehouse to see firsthand how low supplies are. Watch for our report at 6:45 then come drop off donations for the annual food drive this Saturday from 8am-2pm. You'll find drop off locations at HawaiiNewsNow.com.
HELP OUT RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE AND BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB
