About this Episode

Republican leaders in the Senate unveil a new plan to mess with the vote-by-mail process, and voting rights groups are calling them out.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Republicans insist they are not trying to suppress the vote; it's all about preventing fraud in the future.

— The Governor and Cabinet adopt new rules to try to streamline the clemency process. Attorney Richard Greenberg says it's about time.

— The clemency board also voted to rescind any fines imposed by local governments for violating mask mandates or other COVID-19 rules.

— Gov. Ron DeSantis opens a new pod where seniors in Sumter County can get the one-dose COVID-19 vaccination from Johnson & Johnson.

— The Florida Department of Health reports 62 more fatalities from COVID-19. Did you ever imagine a time when 62 deaths in one day is considered an improvement?

— And finally, a Florida Woman is jailed in New Orleans, accused of firing several shots into a crowd and wounding two teenagers on Bourbon Street. And a Florida Man is busted after bouncing on his neighbor's trampoline in the nude.
