About this Episode

Democrats in the Florida House are calling for a Special Session to address several issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Today's the day Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Re-Open Florida Task Force is supposed to come up with the first phase of a plan to get the state back to work and back in business.

— DeSantis says it’s almost time to reopen hospitals and surgery centers, and it could happen as soon as a couple of weeks.

— Florida’s agriculture losses continue to pile up. It’s the second-largest industry in the state. One good thing to come out of this is that people are drinking more orange juice. And plants making toilet paper are working round the clock

— Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis jumps on the anti-China bandwagon, asking the U.S. State Department to help him figure out if any of the $2 billion worth of assets in Florida Unclaimed Property account are owned or controlled by the Chinese government.

Glenn Burhans, the man behind the proposed All Voters Vote amendment, talks about his objection to the price tag placed on the amendment by the state.

— And a newly minted Florida Man (with a fist-full of Super Bowl rings) seems to be having trouble adjusting to life in the Sunshine State.
