The Florida legislature is getting ready to vote on a bill that allows the state to remove OSHA restrictions in Florida because it has been weaponized by the Gestapo in Washington DC.
That will stop any vaccine mandates coming from Biden, but will also remove racism and climate change that OSHA could implement at some time. They will also not have to worry about retribution from the federal agency.
The Republicans have a clear majority in both houses of the legislature as well as the governorship in Florida. The bill should breeze right through. The measure was introduced earlier this month and sponsored by Republicans Sen. Travis Hutson and Rep. Ardian Zika.
The bill was written after OSHA announced Biden’s vaccine mandate. The fate of the mandate is uncertain as the first court placed an injunction on it and that ruling was upheld by the Fifth Circuit of Appeals Court.
House Speaker Chris Sprowls (R) made his support for withdrawing from the federal agency very clear in a press conference earlier in the week. Sprowls accused Biden of weaponizing OSHA.
He said it would allow the Biden 3rd Reich the ability to hold companies hostage to the vaccine mandate. The Biden caliphate is noted for tying liberal wish lists to what used to be legitimate government agencies.
From Sprowls’ statement to the News Service of Florida:
“If OSHA, the Department of Labor and OSHA, is going to be weaponized as a way to hold hostage businesses throughout the state of Florida, no problem. We want a different plan.
We want out of OSHA. We’ll submit our own regulatory authority and say goodbye to the federal government.”
Some of the other proposals that will be discussed by lawmakers next week include: preventing government employees from being forced into vaccination, requiring employers to allow vaccine exemptions for workers, prohibiting the state’s surgeon general from forcing anyone to get vaccinated against their wishes, giving parents the sole authority over vaccination status and mask-wearing by their children in schools, and giving workers the ability to sue over vaccine mandates, among other important measures.
Florida’s legislature – thanks to decisive action by Governor DeSantis to call a special session – is demonstrating to the rest of the republican states in the nation that they are taking the fight against Biden’s federal overreach extremely seriously – they have already been right about resisting lockdowns and other authoritarian measures to limit the spread of the virus – and now they are leading the way once again in the fight against the federal mandates.
