Gov. Ron DeSantis steps up his attack on CBS over their report on “60 Minutes,” which accused him of setting up a pay-for-play system for vaccine distribution.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— DeSantis spent almost 30 minutes trashing corporate media and “the left” without taking any questions. He had to get back to the Governor's Mansion to present the first Florida Medal of Freedom to legendary FSU football coach Bobby Bowden.
— Bowden was forced out in 2009, and the Seminoles have yet to find a better coach — or a better person.
— The Senate approves an insurance reform bill. Supporters claim it's the only way to slow the skyrocketing cost of property insurance … opponents say it's a crisis created by the insurance industry.
— Wednesday was budget day in Tallahassee as the House and Senate took their respective spending plans to the floor. This is just one step in the budget process. Think of this as a dance between two partners who both want to lead.
— The House and Senate paused for a moment of silence to honor Congressman Alcee Hastings, who passed away Tuesday.
— And finally, a Florida Man went for a joyride in a stolen ambulance.
