Right now, the Legislature is secondary to a public health emergency. Gov. Ron DeSantis declared the emergency and Surgeon General Scott Rivkees, who has details on the two confirmed cases of coronavirus, offered a list of suggestions for protecting yourself.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— One of the Governor’s priorities, a bill requiring employers to use the federal E-Verify system to screen new hires, clears committees in both the House and Senate.
— The Senate advances Sen. Dennis Baxley’s bill requiring public school teachers to start the day with a minute of silence in the classroom. The House version of that bill is currently on the special-order calendar in the House.
— And the latest tales of Florida Man, which includes a burglary suspect who digs gopher tortoises. Literally.
