About this Episode

State Sen. Gary Farmer and state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith talk about once again filing bills to ban assault rifles in Florida.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Gov. Ron DeSantis is holding a news conference this morning for what his office calls “a major announcement” — what they say almost every time there’s a presser. But this time, the Gov.’s office may be right — he’s unveiling the new state budget.

— Florida Supreme Court Justice Robert Luck gets his U.S. Senate confirmation hearing as Donald Trump’s pick for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

— Speaking of the ultimate Florida Man — Trump will be holding a “homecoming” rally Thanksgiving week. The President recently changed his official residence to Mar-a-Lago.

— Florida’s unemployment rate is holding steady, but it has not changed much over the past year; the head of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity says it’s all good.

— Attention Florida Man (and/or Woman): Sheriff’s deputies are looking for the person who left a bag of treats outside a Family Dollar store in the town of Citrus Springs. Inside the bag: A half-empty container of eggnog, Reese's Peanut Butter cups, $700 cash, 23 grams of methamphetamine, 15 grams of cocaine, 5 grams of fentanyl and 3 grams of marijuana — and a cellphone.
