About this Episode
Gov. Ron DeSantis clarifies the rules for people under 65 who want a vaccine because of medical conditions that make them vulnerable to COVID-19. You just have to get your doctor to sign a one-page form from the health department; they don’t even have to say why you qualify … just that you do.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— A Senate committee debates a bill protecting the health care industry from COVID-19 liability lawsuits. Democratic Sen. Gary Farmer says the health care heroes may deserve it … but not the bad apples of the nursing home industry.
— The bill passed … but it was close.
— The Senate Transportation Committee votes to end M-CORES - also known as the “Roads to Nowhere.”
— The Senate Agriculture Committee approves a bill to ban tethering of cats and dogs. Sen. Annette Taddeo says it’s cruel to the animals and can be fatal for kids who get too close. Taddeo’s bill ran into opposition from the Florida Dog Hunters Association, but it was amended to address their concerns.
— A discussion about sea-level rise in Florida with Alec Bogdanoff with the American Flood Coalition. He’s heading up their efforts in Florida.
— And finally, a Florida Man is now in jail thanks to his fondness for power tools.
