Florida Gov. DeSantis, AG Moody Announce Lawsuit Against CDC For Public Transportation Mask Mandate

Today, Governor Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody announced Florida is leading 20 states in a multistate action against the unlawful mask mandate on public transportation kept in place by the Biden Administration.

Attorney General Moody and joining states argue that the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) mandate exceeds the agency’s authority and interferes with state laws banning forced masking.

“Florida has led the nation in standing up to misguided federal government policies and fighting back against heavy-handed mandates that have no scientific backing,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “If politicians and celebrities can attend the Super Bowl unmasked, every U.S. citizen should have the right to fly unmasked. It is well past time to get rid of this unnecessary mandate and get back to normal life.”

The current CDC order, which has been in place for over a year, was set to expire on March 18. The Biden Administration chose to extend the order until April 18, despite the lack of high-quality data to support the efficacy of mask mandates, case numbers, and hospitalizations experiencing a largely downward trend, and 81.7% of the population having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The complaint seeks to end the unlawful mask mandate on public transportation and establish a permanent injunction against enforcement of the mandate.

The following states have joined Florida in the complaint: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.
