Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking calculated steps to protect people’s personal freedoms in the Sunshine State. The Republican announced that he plans to call a special legislative session to address the Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The Daily Wire reports:

As reported by the Miami Herald, “At a Thursday news conference in Clearwater, Gov. Ron DeSantis laid out a litany of legislative policy priorities that would undermine federal requirements that workers be vaccinated against the coronavirus.”

“We have got to stand up for people’s jobs and their livelihoods,” DeSantis said. “What we are going to be doing, in addition to mounting aggressive legal challenges to federal mandates, we are also going to be taking legislative action to add protections for people in the state of Florida.”

“That’s something that can not wait until the regular Legislative session next year; it needs to happen soon. So we will be calling the Legislature back for a special session. We want to make sure individuals in Florida have their livelihoods and jobs protected,” DeSantis added.

“Your right to earn a living should not be contingent upon COVID-19 shots,” he said.

DeSantis has made a number of proposals that could undercut the vaccine mandate such as proposing a law that would make businesses liable for any medical issues that arise from a mandatory vaccination.
