Gov. Ron DeSantis is unveiling his second budget for the state of Florida — $91.4 billion. While that may be the biggest budget in Florida history, it’s also one of the smallest increases over a decade.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— State Sen. Jeff Brandes is behind a bill to legalize sports betting in the Sunshine State. People are already doing it, he says, so the state might as well regulate it and get a piece of the action.
— Green jobs abound. A new report about Florida’s burgeoning medical marijuana industry shows more than 9,000 jobs created — more than any other state. And if recreational marijuana is approved by voters, expect that number to go through the roof.
— Florida Politics reporter A.G. Gancarski gives take on the Gov’s new budget, saying it’s a safe budget in an election year.
— Florida Woman hijinks: A Miami Beach woman is facing criminal charges after biting her boyfriend’s penis.
