About this Episode

Congress finally passes legislation to avoid a partial government shutdown.

Also on today’s Sunrise:

— Gov. Ron DeSantis says he’s not planning to go anywhere. We will see.

— Should Florida embrace the flamingo and make it the state bird?

— Congressman Greg Steube scores the big home run in the Congressional Baseball Game.

— Sunrise interview is with Julie Wraithmell, executive director of Audubon Florida. As the U.S. declared this week that 23 birds, fish and other species are now extinct, Wraithmell says it should serve as a wake-up call with a commitment to doing better for all remaining species. Wraithmell also chimes in on calls by Sen. Jeff Brandes to ditch the mockingbird for a more Florida-centric state bird.
