(FOX NEWS) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that his state will officially file a lawsuit against President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
During a press conference with state Attorney General Ashley Moody in Tampa, DeSantis said Florida would be joining Georgia, Alabama and private plaintiffs in suing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) over its vaccine mandate for employers.
“This is not consistent with a government of limited and enumerated powers,” the Republican governor said. “There is no general police power, there is no power to mandate on the American people from the federal government.”
“Individuals should make informed choices about their own healthcare,” he added. “They shouldn’t be coerced into getting the jab.”
OSHA is giving employers with more than 100 employees a Jan. 4 deadline to comply with the mandate and threatening as much as $14,000 per violation for defiant businesses, according to a fact sheet released by the White House Thursday.
