Gov. Ron DeSantis is facing pushback over his decision to end state mitigation efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— The Governor is defending his decision to reopen bars, restaurants and nightclubs at full capacity, saying the state will be getting millions of new instant test kits from the feds for use at nursing homes and senior centers.
— Florida’s Department of Health confirmed 3,266 new cases of COVID-19 Tuesday, the highest number in the past ten days. They also reported new 106 fatalities.
— Florida unions are supporting Amendment 2, which seeks to raise the minimum wage. If they left it to the Legislature, it would never happen.
— Unions are also opposing Amendment 4, which makes it much harder and far more expensive for citizens to bypass the Legislature to get an amendment on the ballot.
— Liberal groups are pleading with Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott to oppose the President’s pick for the Supreme Court because they believe it would be the end of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
— And finally, a Florida Man drove his SUV in the golf cart lane. As expected, alcohol was a factor.
