Florida Suing Over Federal Contractor Vaccine Mandate

The new federal vaccine mandate for contractors’ jobs is not sitting well with the state of Florida.

That mandate would put contract workers at NASA out of a job (among many other contractor jobs in the state), so Governor Ron DeSantis is fighting back on their behalf.

The state is suing Biden, NASA, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, and officials within the White House Office of Management and Budget, and the Department of Defense over the mandates.

Not in Florida

If the mandate stays in place, all contractors in the state would lose their jobs on December 8 unless they are fully vaccinated.

The suit to fight the mandate was filed by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The suit states that NASA is among the agencies that “frequently contracts with Florida, has current contractual relationships with Florida, and is and will continue to seek to impose the Biden administration’s unlawful requirements to Florida.

“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 suit continues, stating that this administration is “relying on a statute” that would allow Joe Biden 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.”

It further claims, “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.”

Florida is setting the tone here and based on how successful this suit is will more than likely dictate how other red states proceed that will have the same problem come December 8.
