DeSantis says Florida will sue federal government over workplace vaccine rule

Source: Tampa Bay Times

The governor held a printed version of the rule in his hand while he spoke.

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday he would join a lawsuit with Georgia, Alabama and private plaintiffs seeking to nullify a rule by President Joe Biden’s administration mandating coronavirus vaccines or testing in large workplaces.

At a news conference in Tallahassee, DeSantis said the rule was an example of federal overreach. The federal government does not have the power to hand down health mandates, DeSantis argued, nor does it have the power to enforce its rule with fines as high as $13,653 per violation. He also argued a rule that has been coming for close to two months and that requires workers to be vaccinated by Jan. 4 can hardly be a response to an “emergency.”

The state will file its lawsuit in the U. S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit on Friday, he said.

“We’ve got to stand up. We’ve got to stand up for the Constitutional order,” DeSantis said.

The Republican governor had previously announced his intention to sue the Biden administration over the rule, but the federal government did not release the final version until Thursday. It came in at a bulky 490 pages. The governor, with state Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo by his side, held a printed out version of the rule in his hand while he spoke.

14. Desantis' wife is being treated for breast cancer.... wonder if her doctors are vaxxed...

DeSantis has not said the stage of the first lady’s cancer or where she was being treated, but he did say Tuesday that she’s already met with doctors.
....
He also encouraged men and women to get screened for different types of cancer.

“These screenings and the things that you do can really, really be life-saving,” he said. “Make sure you go in and do that when the physicians tell you to.”
