Florida Files Major Lawsuit Against Biden Over ‘Unlawful’ COVID Vaccine Mandates for Federal Contractors


Florida is suing Joe Biden, NASA and a number of officials and agencies within the Biden administration.

The claims the coronavirus vaccine mandate for government contractors is “unlawful.”

The state says the mandate interferes with Florida’s employment policies and “threatens” the state’s economy.

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

Biden currently demands workers are fully vaccinated by Dec. 8th.

The lawsuit reads, “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.”

“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 continues.

Florida’s lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in the middle district of Florida’s Tampa division Thursday morning, argues that NASA, and others “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.”

In the lawsuit, Florida argues that, if unchallenged, the federal vaccine requirements would force Florida to require vaccinations of certain state officials, as the state contracts with entities that also contract with the federal government.

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.”

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”…

The lawsuit comes after President Biden signed an executive order over the summer requiring that all workers in the executive branch be vaccinated against COVID-19. Biden also signed an order to require businesses with more than 100 workers to mandate coronavirus vaccinations.

Biden also signed an order in September requiring federal contractors to mandate vaccinations and ensure workers are fully vaccinated by Dec. 8. Some organizations representing federal contractors have urged the administration to extend the deadline for workers through 2022, arguing that the deadline could cause mass resignations in the height of the holiday season, and could contribute to the worsening supply chain crisis.
