Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Thursday announced he is calling the Florida Legislature back for a special session to address intrusive vaccine mandates and create protections for Floridians who risk losing their jobs. He stressed an individual’s right to earn a living “should not be contingent upon COVID shots.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said Thursday he will call a special session of the Florida legislature to vote on banning private companies from enacting vaccine mandates, as part of a plan to take even stronger action against public Covid restrictions, in a state already known for its aggressive stance.
The Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for companies with over 100 employees through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is expected to be put in place soon, and Republican governors around the country are prepared to take legal action against the measure.
