About this Episode

The Florida House could vote on a bill today to bar transgender students from the women's team. Democrats oppose the bill … but they don't have the votes to stop it.

Also, on today’s #Sunrise:

— Gov. Ron DeSantis is fuming over “cancel culture.” This time, it's personal. He's upset that YouTube removed one of his video roundtables on COVID-19 because it violated their rules about misinformation. So, DeSantis invited the doctors who took part in that discussion to another roundtable to talk about censorship.

— The Governor is also warning corporate CEO's not to get involved in the fight over changing election laws. He says they have no right to interfere in Florida politics.

— DeSantis says corporations can do all the lobbying they want over taxes and regulations … but he warns them to stay out of social justice issues.

— With less than three weeks left in Session, the push is to strike a new deal over gambling. The biggest change would allow pari-mutuels to keep their slots and card rooms without having any live races.

— Lawmakers are now waiting to see if the Governor can seal a deal for a new gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe.

— And finally, a Florida Woman has been sentenced to 29 days in jail for assault after deliberately coughing on a woman with brain cancer.
