About this Episode

A bill to strengthen Florida's Right to Farm law heads for the Governor’s desk after final passage in the House. The debate had its moments.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Everyone loves their local farmers, but critics say this bill also protects Florida’s sugar farmers from legal fallout over the burning of cane fields in South Florida.

— A revamp of the state's election law hits the Senate floor, its final stop. Among other things, it bands people from handing out treats and drinks at polling places if they have any campaign stickers — but you can always BYOB.

— The Florida Supreme Court says an amendment to legalize recreational marijuana cannot go on the ballot because it misleads the voters. Glenn Burhans discusses that decision.

— The House approves a bill that would make it easier to exclude the only Democrat elected to the state cabinet.

— Don't look now, but Otter Cat has resurfaced in the Senate.

— And finally, a Florida couple invited their friends to a lavish wedding at what they thought was a vacant mansion. It was not.
