On Thursday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody have filed yet another lawsuit against the U.S. government. This lawsuit, according to a Miami Herald report, challenges “the rule requiring companies that are federal contractors to show proof of vaccination or weekly COVID tests of their employees.” DeSantis called the rule a “heavy-handed mandate never authorized by Congress,” according to the report.

This recent lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in the Middle District of Florida’s Tampa division, is just one of a series of lawsuits against the federal government’s vaccine mandate COVID-19 protocols, imposed by Joe Biden. It seeks to put a halt to the implementation of the Dec. 8 deadline that applies to federal contractors.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, DeSantis said at a press conference in Lakeland “We are going to seek a preliminary injunction so that this mandate isn’t allowed to be imposed at the expense of the jobs of Floridians. We’ve got a very big footprint of companies that do contracting work for the federal government,’’ including the defense contractors and many along the Space Coast of Florida. “There’s a lot of folks that will be in the cross hairs on this.” 

DeSantis is also set to challenge a rule issued by the Biden regime that requires businesses with 100 or more employees to offer either a vaccine or a weekly testing option, a rule that is expected to be released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in the next week. According to a Sunburn, Florida politics article, “ DeSantis also said he should have a proclamation released Thursday that sets the dates for a November special legislative session; he said last week he wanted to impose additional penalties on businesses that require vaccines or regular COVID-19 testing of their employees. The governor said he supports a ban on vaccine mandates, but he has backed off calling for that in Florida in the face of quiet resistance among the business community. In Florida, we believe these things are choices based on individual circumstances,’’ he said.”
