Gov. DeSantis Pushes Back Against Fed Overreach to Sign Four anti-Vaccine Mandate Bills
As American families gather around their Thanksgiving dinner tables to give thanks to God almighty and celebrate their yearly holiday traditions, enjoying a bounty of food and shared memories of yesteryear, a pronounced shadow intruder is invading the homesteads of our nation’s people from coast to coast. That intruder is Covid-19 politics.
Scare tactics between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated have alienated and altered families and friends. There will be more serious dinnertime conversations at hand besides, “pass the turkey and stuffing, please, and is there any more gravy for my mashed potatoes?”
Even those who don’t like talking politics see the downhill spiral of how dirty politics are involved in the most intimate facets of our American lifestyle and the infliction of the Feds vs. States rights.
While New York state has mandated its citizens to wear masks in public places this week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis once again challenges the federal elite authority, reminding them of the unconstitutional ramifications in the form of fines and lawsuits to ensure the rights of all Floridians.
Among other governors in the sovereign rights department, Florida’s governor leads, and the sunshine state has experienced a massive population increase because of it. No worn-out draconian politics, most pronounced by blue states like New York, California, Illinois, and others, will not work in Florida’s sunny paradise.
DeSantis signed four anti-vaccine mandate bills into law that came through after a 3-day special legislative session, as he took the state of Florida’s “power of the people” away from the clutches of the Feds. He stated, “Today, we lift people up,” We provide protections for people. No nurse, no firefighter, no police officer, no trucker, no anybody should lose their job because of these COVID jabs, and that’s what we’re doing.”
– HB 1B takes aim directly at the mandates, including federal vaccine mandates, business mandates, and local mandates against vaccinations, masks, or quarantines in schools, and levies some hefty fines against violators.
– HB 3B protects workers who file a complaint against a private employer violating the COVID laws by creating a public record exemption, so you can’t learn their identities from state documents.
– HB 5B looks into the possibility of creating a state Occupational Safety and Health Administration agency, something more than two dozen states plus two U.S. territories already have.
– HB 7B takes the ability to order vaccinations away from the state health officer.
In summary, under the bill, Florida private-sector workers could avoid vaccination requirements if they provide medical reasons, religious reasons, or can demonstrate “COVID-19 immunity.” They could also be exempt if they agree to regular COVID-19 testing or agree to wear personal protective equipment.
Employers could face fines up to $50,000 per violation if they don’t correctly follow the law.
The Legislation also will bar government agencies from requiring workers to be vaccinated. In addition, it reinforces a law known as the “Parents Bill of Rights” to ban student masks and vaccination requirements in public schools.
The school part of the bill came later due to months of legal battling between the state and some school districts that required students to wear masks. Those districts have dropped mask requirements recently as COVID-19 cases have subsided, and districts have not imposed vaccination mandates.
Florida, and other red states, have filed federal-court challenges to an Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule aimed at requiring tens of millions of workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be regularly tested and wear masks.
The rule has been put on hold after an order by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which hears cases from Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. The order did not resolve the underlying legal issues in the challenges.
OSHA’s website states, “While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the (rule) pending future developments in the litigation.”
Since separate federal rules are designed to require vaccination of employees of federal employees and contractors of hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare providers taking part in Medicare and Medicaid programs, Florida has also filed a legal challenge against the federal-contractor rule.
“I urge all citizens to make this Thanksgiving not merely a holiday from their labors, but rather a day of contemplation. I ask the head of each family to recount to his children the story of the first New England Thanksgiving, thus to impress upon future generations the heritage of this nation born in toil, in danger, in purpose, and in the conviction that right and justice and freedom can through man’s efforts persevere and come to fruition with the blessing of God.” – John F. Kennedy.
