About this Episode

The House is ready to vote on final passage of a bill to change the way Floridians vote by mail. Democrats offered 18 amendments to the elections bill. None passed.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— A bill that allows concealed carry of guns at churches that share space with a school is on its way to Gov. Ron DeSantis.

— Another bill exempts presidential search committees at state colleges and universities from the Sunshine Law flames out in the Senate. The bill had support from most Senators, but it was one vote short of the two-thirds margin required to pass an exemption to the open records law.

— After being indicted by the statewide grand jury, the Broward County School Superintendent Robert Runcie vows on video he will beat the perjury charge. Several hours after a video dropped, Runcie announced he's resigning — but not because of the indictment.

— Otter Cat is back in the Legislature, but now with a fancier name — jaguarundi.

— And finally, a Florida Woman says teachers vaccinated for COVID-19 can't work at her school anymore because it messes with a student's menstrual cycles. Spoiler alert: it’s a hoax.
