    Dealin'

    A select group of state lawmakers spent the weekend trying to work out the difference between the House and Senate budgets. Think of it as a high-stakes version of "Let's Make a Deal." And if you're a teacher waiting on that thousand-dollar bonus suggested by the Governor, you may already be a loser.


    Also, on today’s Sunrise:


    — Once again, Gov. Ron DeSantis is dismissing the medical experts when it comes to COVID-19. While the CDC says vaccinated people should continue to wear a mask, DeSantis claims it's unnecessary.


    — But Dr. Anthony Fauci says there's a reason to keep your mask on, even after you've been vaccinated.


    — DeSantis also has problems with the way the feds have handled the pause on the J&J’s vaccine to investigate links to a rare form of blood clots. Fauci says the pause could end by the end of the week.


    — Florida's economic recovery may have hit the pause button in March as the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.7%.


    — Florida added more than 30,000 new jobs in March… and 40,000 people joined the labor pool.


    — And finally, a Florida Man tried to escape from a hospital after police took him there to remove a cell phone from his butt.

    The Senate votes to crack down on violent protests and a House committee advances a bill on police standards designed to weed out bad cops.


    Also, on today’s Sunrise:

    — The Senate Appropriations Committee votes to make changes in the unemployment system to increase benefits and make it easier to sign up for help.


    — The House votes to repeal the free kill bill by allowing the parents of adult children to sue if their child dies as a result of medical malpractice.


    — The House also passes a bill targeting teachers who commit sexual abuse and avoid punishment by simply resigning.


    — And finally, a Florida man was busted from running in the buff, and a Florida Woman was busted for fraud — and the 170 pounds of pot they found in her bathroom. Must have been stinkweed.

    — The House also approves a bill to try to limit foreign influence at Florida colleges and universities.

    Belittle

    Belittle

    Also, on today’s Sunrise:


    — Gov. Ron DeSantis suspends Johnson & Johnson vaccines after the feds call for a pause to investigate a handful of cases where people developed blood clots. But DeSantis still has faith in J&J.


    — Nearly half a million Floridians have already received a J&J vaccination … including the Governor.


    — Now that the breach at the Piney Point phosphate pond in Manatee County has been sealed, DeSantis says it's time to end this threat to the environment for the last time. The Governor ordered Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Noah Valenstein to close it down and clean it up and take legal action against HRK Holdings — the hedge fund that owns Piney Point.


    — The Mayor of Key West travels to Tallahassee to ask the Governor for protection from mega cruise ships. Renowned fishing guide William Benson says most ships are fine, but the big ones can do serious damage.

    Transgender

    Transgender

    The Florida House could vote on a bill today to bar transgender students from the women's team. Democrats oppose the bill … but they don't have the votes to stop it.


    Also, on today’s #Sunrise:


    — Gov. Ron DeSantis is fuming over “cancel culture.” This time, it's personal. He's upset that YouTube removed one of his video roundtables on COVID-19 because it violated their rules about misinformation. So, DeSantis invited the doctors who took part in that discussion to another roundtable to talk about censorship.


    — The Governor is also warning corporate CEO's not to get involved in the fight over changing election laws. He says they have no right to interfere in Florida politics.


    — DeSantis says corporations can do all the lobbying they want over taxes and regulations … but he warns them to stay out of social justice issues.


    — With less than three weeks left in Session, the push is to strike a new deal over gambling. The biggest change would allow pari-mutuels to keep their slots and card rooms without having any live races.


    — Lawmakers are now waiting to see if the Governor can seal a deal for a new gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe.


    — And finally, a Florida Woman has been sentenced to 29 days in jail for assault after deliberately coughing on a woman with brain cancer.

    Disliked

    After a marathon eight-hour meeting, the Senate Appropriations Committee advances HB 1, the anti-protest bill that no one seems to like.


    Also, on today’s Sunrise:


    — It appears the only people who support HB 1 are Gov. Ron DeSantis and GOP leaders in the Legislature — but that's all it takes to pass the bill.


    — Over the past week, Florida had 42,407 new cases of COVID-19 and 347 newly reported deaths. When compared to the previous week, the number of deaths is down while the number of new cases is up … but there's something fishy about the fatalities. We'll tell you why.


    — North Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has been getting lots of coverage likely … the kind most lawmakers would be ashamed of discussing. But not Gaetz. He talked about those allegations during a speech in South Florida.


    — On Sunrise SoapBox, the Cliff Notes version of the speech.


    — How would you spend $3.5 billion from the federal government? Would you believe to fix state buildings and other properties? The technical term is "deferred maintenance." You'll hear the House Speaker's spirited defense of deferred maintenance.


    — And finally, a Florida Woman crashed her car and told police she was Harry Potter. It might have been funny except for the federal judge she ran over on the sidewalk.
