About this Episode

A national leader in the fight against human trafficking says Florida is one of the state’s leading the way — but we still don’t know the full extent of the problem or a way to prevent it.

Also, today on Sunrise:

— The state wildlife commission is considering new rules for a handful of companies that offer elephant rides to the public. While the proposal doesn’t ban the practice, new regulations could put some of those companies out of business.

— New laws passed in the 2019 Legislative Session are taking effect today. Make sure you don’t hurt a police dog, haze someone, text while driving through a school zone or try to buy a child-like sex doll.

— Another new gun bill has been filed for the 2020 Session. This time, it’s to ban guns — including concealed carry — at childcare facilities in Florida.

— A toothless Florida woman faces two charges of auto theft after her dentures were discovered inside a stolen Kia.
