About this Episode

Tributes continue to pour in over the passing of former Congresswoman Meek.

Also on today’s Sunrise:

— After a federal judge struck down the state’s gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe. Now it seems all eyes (and bets) are on a 2022 ballot initiative to legalize sports betting in the Sunshine State.

— Lawmakers are back in Tallahassee for their final committee week before next year’s Legislative Session.

— Today’s Sunrise Interviews features Matthew Beatty, vice president and chief operating officer of the Carrie Meek Foundation, and Yolanda Cash Jackson, Shareholder of Becker and Poliakoff — they both share tributes and fond memories of Meek.

— On the show is Johnson, the Republican general campaign and initiative consultant who is president of Florida Education Champions, the group trying to get a constitutional amendment on the 2022 ballot asking voters to approve sports gambling in the state.
