About this Episode

The Ron DeSantis administration is trying to calm any public fears about the spread of coronavirus. The Governor says they’re committed to transparency, but there are still some questions they will not answer.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Despite opposition from big business, the Commerce Committee in the House approves a bill requiring employers to use the E-Verify system to check the immigration status of new hires. But the bill only applies to government agencies and companies that do business with them.

— DeSantis signed a bill abolishing the sweetheart deal enjoyed by the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, happening as the House Committee on Public Integrity was grilling the chief financial officer and board members of the coalition about its finances and the millions of dollars that ended up in the pocket of the former director. Renzo Downey, the Florida Politics reporter who’s been covering the committee hearings, talks about the situation.

— A Florida man says he’s going to pray the coronavirus away — but only in Florida — while another just found the largest known prime number.
