Here are six things to know for today.

Tea party conservatives don't like it but the Senate is set to at today on a spending bill to keep the government going past Wednesday, without cutting funding for Planned Parenthood. The House is expected to also approve the measure.

The chaotic leadership battle in the House is front and center for Republican members. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is moving aggressively to lock up support to succeed Speaker John Boehner. A special, closed-door meeting is scheduled for tonight.

A judge is expected to decide today when the first of six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray will go to trial. All of the officers have pleaded not guilty.

Be on the lookout for crews at several exits in Caldwell County today. A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be reconstructing entrances and adding fences at exits 79 and 81 on Interstate 69. Drivers are asked to watch for lane restrictions and flaggers.

You will have something to brag about today if you have Aaron Rodgers or Randall Cobb on your fantasy football team. The Packers quarterback threw five touch-downs leading the Packers to a 38 to 28 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Cobb, the former University of Kentucky star, caught three of them.

You could get your morning cup of coffee free of charge today. That's because it is National Coffee Day. Some chains, like Dunkin' Donuts, are offering free cups of hot or iced coffee today to celebrate.
