Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Sues Joe Biden’s Admin Over ‘Unconstitutional’ Order

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced the state filed a new lawsuit against the Biden Administration for the “unconstitutional” vaccine mandate on federal contractors. Ron claims Biden’s orders illegally apply to workers in Florida.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Gov. Ron DeSantis filed the lawsuit against Biden, NASA, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, and officials at the White House Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Defense.

“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.

“Nothing in that statute authorizes such a radical intrusion on the personal autonomy of American workers—especially, as is the case here, when many of those workers are officials of a sovereign state,” the lawsuit says.

From Fox News:

Florida’s lawsuit says that the Biden administration is “relying on a statute” which authorizes the president to “‘prescribe policies and directives that the president considers necessary to carry out’ the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act (FPASA) of 1949 (FPASA)” to “compel millions of Americans who work for government contractors to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.”

“Nothing in that statute authorizes such a radical intrusion on the personal autonomy of American workers—especially, as is the case here, when many of those workers are officials of a sovereign state,” the lawsuit says. 

Florida argued that “even if” the statute did authorize the mandate, the administration’s vaccine requirements “would still be unlawful because the manner in which they were enacted violates fundamental principles of administrative and procurement law.”

Florida believes the administration “misread FPASA,” claiming it “does not authorize the government to use its contracts to impose social policy not authorized by Congress,” a Florida official told Fox News.
