About this Episode

A momentous change in vaccination policy is coming; starting next week, the Governor says the age limit will drop from 65 to 60 … which means two million more Floridians will be eligible for shots.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

But Democrats have stepped up their attacks on Gov. Ron DeSantis for his vaccination plan … or the lack thereof.

The Governor is NOT happy with the new COVID-19 rescue bill. Florida will be getting more than $17 billion, but DeSantis says that’s about $2 billion less than it should be.

— DeSantis wants to use $2 billion from the feds to bail out Florida’s unemployment trust fund and protect businesses from a tax increase. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is trying to find some way to stop it.

— Lawmakers will be debating a bill to limit the power of local officials to issue emergency orders ... as so many of them did during the pandemic. They’ll also talk about a bill capping the amount of THC in medical marijuana.

— And finally, a Florida Man was so distraught after his girlfriend dumped him that he burned her possessions. If only he hadn’t been in a hotel at the time.
