About this Episode

Florida’s Department of Corrections release some scary numbers about the spread of coronavirus behind bars.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— A huge swamp fire in Northwest Florida is tangling traffic by closing the I-10. Gov. Ron DeSantis and Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried both went there to check it out.

— Liberal groups, including the Dream Defenders and Latino Justice, are teaming up in what they call the Freedom for Florida Coalition. They want the legal system to be more progressive and accountable. They claim our current system is destroying minority communities.

— Rep. Evan Jenne talks about a proposed Special Session on coronavirus that will NOT be happening. Democrats tried to force the issue, but Republicans refused. There could still be a Special Session to fix the budget hole created by the virus, but it won’t be on the Democrats terms.

— And two stories of Florida Men: One ended up on the wrong side of the law, another on the wrong side of the canal.
