Florida continues to be a bastion of freedom in the US.
Florida is now suing the Biden Administration over their vaccine mandate for federal officials and contractors.
The lawsuit alleges that this mandate will force Florida to have a mandate as well in certain situations.
The state of Florida is suing President Biden, NASA and a number of officials and agencies within the Biden administration over its “unlawful” COVID-19 vaccine mandates requiring government contractors to get vaccinated, saying the rule interferes with Florida’s employment policies and “threaten” the state’s economy.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Gov. Ron DeSantis filed the lawsuit, first obtained by Fox News, against Biden, NASA, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, and officials within the White House Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Defense over the mandates, which require all workers in the executive branch be vaccinated against COVID-19, and require federal contractors to mandate vaccinations and ensure workers are fully vaccinated by Dec. 8.
Florida’s lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in the middle district of Florida’s Tampa division Thursday morning, argues that NASA, and others “frequently contracts with Florida, has current contractual relationships with Florida, and is and will continue to seek to impose the Biden administration’s unlawful requirements to Florida.”
“Because the government’s unlawful vaccine requirement seeks to interfere with Florida’s employment policies and threaten Florida with economic harm and the loss of federal contracts, the State seeks relief from this Court,” the lawsuit states.
In the lawsuit, Florida argues that, if unchallenged, the federal vaccine requirements would force Florida to require vaccinations of certain state officials, as the state contracts with entities that also contract with the federal government.
DeSantis has called for a special session to counter Biden’s vaccine mandates.
DeSantis also pointed out vaccine mandates would wreck the economy:
