Florida’s teachers’ union is coming to the Florida Capitol, part of a statewide bus tour with 50 stops in every corner of the state to talk about funding for public schools.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Another day ... another photo emerges showing the Gov. Ron DeSantis with the two South Florida businessmen indicted by federal prosecutors in New York on charges of funneling foreign money into U.S. political campaigns.
— The Florida Chamber Foundation starts its two-day “Future of Florida Forum” in Orlando, with a roster of high-profile state leaders on the dais.
— Two Republican Senators team up to file a bill requiring Florida employers to use the federal E-Verify system on all new hires. Big business doesn’t like it, and it’s a rare day when the Legislature does something they don’t like.
— The Governor and state lawmakers will spend a lot of time during the 2020 Legislative Session talking about the environment, but Sierra Club’s Frank Jackalone says it may already be too late to save Florida (as we know it). Sunrise takes a deep dive into some very gloomy predictions.
— A true Florida couple: A Pinellas County man and woman have been arrested on drug possession charges after deputies in Texas discovered methamphetamine disguised as laundry detergent during a traffic stop on Interstate 10.
