About this Episode
If you've been waiting on a COVID-19 shot, get ready. Beginning Monday, adults' age restrictions are gone; Gov. Ron DeSantis says Florida will receive a record number of vaccines next week.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— The Governor is planning to get his own vaccination before the end of the week
— DeSantis is also asking state lawmakers to give teachers and principals $1,000 bonuses for getting schools reopened during the pandemic.
— The Senate Health Policy committee approves a bill saying transgender kids cannot play on the girl's team — unless they take a testosterone test. LGBTQ advocates are wondering what lawmakers will do next.
— Speaking of which, the House votes on the “Parental Bill of Rights” that would require schools to out gay students to their parents, even if doing so would put those kids in danger.
— Yet another hole in the Sunshine Law. A senate committee votes to exempt the home address of lawmakers from the public records law. Sen. Ray Rodrigues says the current climate is so toxic that lawmakers need protection from angry constituents.
— And finally, police are accusing a Florida Woman of stabbing her roommate over $60 in federal stimulus money.
