A select group of state lawmakers spent the weekend trying to work out the difference between the House and Senate budgets. Think of it as a high-stakes version of "Let's Make a Deal." And if you're a teacher waiting on that thousand-dollar bonus suggested by the Governor, you may already be a loser.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Once again, Gov. Ron DeSantis is dismissing the medical experts when it comes to COVID-19. While the CDC says vaccinated people should continue to wear a mask, DeSantis claims it's unnecessary.
— But Dr. Anthony Fauci says there's a reason to keep your mask on, even after you've been vaccinated.
— DeSantis also has problems with the way the feds have handled the pause on the J&J’s vaccine to investigate links to a rare form of blood clots. Fauci says the pause could end by the end of the week.
— Florida's economic recovery may have hit the pause button in March as the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.7%.
— Florida added more than 30,000 new jobs in March… and 40,000 people joined the labor pool.
— And finally, a Florida Man tried to escape from a hospital after police took him there to remove a cell phone from his butt.
