About this Episode

The halls of The Capitol are quiet today because most lawmakers are home for the Easter holiday and won't be back till Tuesday. Neither will we.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Before leaving town, lawmakers in the House passed the Parents Bill of Rights. The Senate grappled with insurance reform. 

— Gov. Ron DeSantis steps up his criticism of the Joe Biden administration over immigration, saying they need to go back to the policies of Donald Trump.

— Fifteen million doses of the J&J vaccine were ruined because of a mix-up at the factory, but DeSantis says Florida will still be getting a record amount of vaccine next week.

— There's been a spike in COVID-19 cases and fatalities in Florida; the state reported almost 6,800 new cases Thursday — the most in almost a month.

— And finally, a Florida man is calling for 1 million people to march in Fort Lauderdale as a protest against what he calls "one year of mask tyranny in Broward County."
