The House approved a bill to try to weed out the bad apples of law enforcement. Backers of the bill hope it can improve relations between police and communities of color.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— The policing bill passed the House unanimously … which absolutely no one would have predicted at the start of Session.
— A bill to expand and merge Florida's private school voucher programs is headed to Gov. Ron DeSantis after final passage in the Senate. This vote was NOT unanimous. They'll have a lot more money to spend once the Governor signs the voucher bill.
— After boasting that Florida had the best election in the country last year, the Senate approves a controversial election reform bill. The bill passed on a party-line vote.
— The Senate also approves a controversial bill punishing social media platforms for banning Donald Trump and censoring hate speech.
— Don't look now… Otter Cat is back. Last week it was in the Senate… now it's an issue in the House. It was fun the first few times, but Otter Cat may have worn out its welcome in The Capitol.
— And today, a homeless Florida Man is being hailed as a hero after saving the life of a driver whose SUV caught fire after a head-on crash in Escambia County.
