Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced a lawsuit against the Biden Administration’s order requiring employees of federal contractors to be vaccinated by December 8, following through on a promise to take legal action to stop federal overreach and making Florida the first state in the nation to hold the President accountable.
The lawsuit seeks an immediate end to the unlawful requirement that federal contractors ensure that all employees have received a mandated injection.
The Governor was joined at the announcement by Attorney General Ashley Moody, as well as Floridians who have faced or are facing consequences as a result of vaccine mandates.
“Just months ago Joe Biden was saying that it wouldn’t be appropriate or lawful for the federal government to mandate these COVID shots,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “But now we have somehow gone from 15 days to slow the spread to 3 jabs to keep your job. The federal government is exceeding their power and it is important for us to take a stand because in Florida we believe these are choices based on individual circumstances.”
Last week, Governor DeSantis announced a Special Session of the Florida Legislature to provide protections for employees and defend the right of parents to opt their children out of school mask and quarantine mandates.
The Governor has been working closely with the House and Senate as we move forward and the dates of the Special Session will be announced this week.
“Governor DeSantis has made it abundantly clear that we have a responsibility to fight back against unconstitutional federal overreach and that is exactly what we will accomplish through this lawsuit and during the upcoming Special Session,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “We look forward to working with Senate President Simpson and House Speaker Sprowls to empower parents, provide protections for employees, and further protect our rights and liberties that we hold dear as Floridians.”
“Governor DeSantis, I appreciate you standing up, not just for me, not even just for these people here, but we’re talking about every U.S. citizen, whether they were unvaccinated or vaccinated,” said John Freeland, a personal trainer and fitness coach from Palm Beach County. “Because the federal government, the current people in that position, are overstepping their bounds. They are choosing what they think we should all do without having our own personal choice. We are America. We are the land of the free and that capability of making our own choices is being stripped away.”
