DeSantis calls for special Florida legislative session to fight Biden’s vaccine mandate
“We have an opportunity here to take additional action, and I think we have to do it,” said DeSantis.
TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday called for a special legislative session to block the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates, taking the most aggressive action yet in his ongoing fight with the White House over Covid restrictions.
The GOP governor, who has built a national reputation fighting against coronavirus-related lockdowns and mandates, said during a news conference in Pinellas County that the special session will yield a set of protections that will prevent Biden’s vaccine mandates from being enacted in Florida.
“We have an opportunity here to take additional action, and I think we have to do it,” said DeSantis, who previously also said he would challenge the mandates in court. “I think we have got to stand up for people’s jobs and their livelihoods.”
The governor did not announce a date for the session.
