About this Episode

Gov. Ron DeSantis is back from the White House Summit on COVID-19 where he got a shoutout from President Donald Trump.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— While the Governor was acting as a cheerleader for Trump, the Florida Department of Health reported 98 more deaths and almost 8,000 new cases of COVID-19.

— Now that COVID-19 tanked the tourism trade, agriculture is the biggest economic driver in Florida and Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried says our new hemp crop is turning heads.

— Florida TaxWatch and the environmental group One Thousand Friends of Florida are looking to tackle MCORES — the controversial plan to build three new toll roads through some of the last undeveloped areas of the state.

— Rep. Anthony Sabatini keeps pushing hot buttons in the Florida Legislature. The Howey-in-the-Hills Republican is now sponsoring a bill to ban red-light cameras. It would abolish the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Law. On Sunrise Flashback, you’ll hear from Mark’s widow Melissa.

— Repealing the red-light camera law is only one of the controversial bills Sabatini filed for the upcoming Session.

— And finally, meet a Florida Man who lets snakes bite him — for educational purposes.
