Florida Judge Moves to Block Biden’s Vaccine Rule for Contractors

(FeaturedNews.com) – Florida was among the majority of at least 27 states that sued Joe Biden during the fall over his controversial mandate that would force companies with over 100 employees to require COVID-19 vaccines or weekly testing. The state has now joined Georgia, Missouri, and Kentucky in completely blocking the mandate should it go into effect at the federal level in January.

Florida Is the Latest State to Block Biden’s Vaccine Mandate

According to U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday, there is a “substantial likelihood” that Biden’s controversial mandate is not within his authority, which led him to officially block it from applying to Florida workers on Wednesday.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has also supported the workers in his state when it comes to preserving their right to work without receiving a vaccine they are not comfortable with. He created recent legislation that allows all workers to opt out of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, including those that may be imposed at the federal level or by private companies.

Challenges to Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Are a Major Win for Contractors

Although there is certainly nothing wrong with companies encouraging their employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine or even providing incentives for doing so, no worker should be forced to receive a vaccine they are personally uncomfortable with to be allowed to provide for themselves and their families.

Judges in Florida and several other states agree that Biden likely overstepped his authority by creating a mandate so extreme that it would force thousands of people to choose between compromising their beliefs and losing their livelihoods. Florida’s decision to block Biden’s mandate gives workers at large companies within the state hope that they will be able to continue in their current positions without being forced to receive a medical procedure they do not want.

Biden finally admitted on Monday that ”there is no federal solution” that can solve COVID-19, which can only benefit arguments that will be heard by the Supreme Court in the coming weeks to potentially block the mandate at the federal level.
