About this Episode

It’s committee week at the Florida Capitol as lawmakers kick into high gear to prepare for the Legislative Session beginning in January. Florida Politics’ Jim Rosica stops by the studio with a preview of what’s in store.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— A new campaign to get former felons to the polls in Florida, which includes a statewide bus tour by a group called the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. They’ll be on the road for the rest of the month.

— Florida is No. 1 in America for fraud; all three members of the state Cabinet are vowing to crack down on fraud, and each has a unique role to play on the issue.

— After a scathing investigation and a new audit, the state Department of Education is calling for a complete reboot of the Florida Virtual School.

— More Florida Men hijinks: An 18-year-old Pasco County resident is accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill a faculty member at his high school north of Tampa. Also, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies are accusing a registered sex offender of using a Bible app to secretly connect with underage girls at a church youth group.
