Just in case you needed more proof that our governor, Governor DeSantis was the fairest in all the land, here you go …
DeSantis ends the government’s tyrannical and counter productive lockdowns but lets private businesses make their own decisions, as the Founders intended …
WUSF News reported:
‘An executive order, which takes effect immediately, and the law, which takes effect July 1, affect only government action and do not prevent businesses from issuing restrictions on patrons, the governor said.
Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday signed legislation that limits local government emergency orders related to COVID-19 and creates a permanent ban on vaccine “passports.”
He also signed an executive order that limits those local powers until the bill takes effect July 1.
DeSantis, at a St. Petersburg restaurant for the signings, said that while the fight against COVID-19 continues, “we are no longer in a state of emergency.”
He cited the effectiveness of vaccines in slowing the spread of the illness and a need for people to maintain personal liberties.
“I think this is the evidence-based thing to do,” he said.
“I think folks that are saying they need to be policing people at this point … you really are saying you don’t believe in the vaccines, you don’t believe in the data, you don’t believe in the science. We’ve embraced the vaccines, we’ve embraced the science on it.”
The executive order, which takes effect immediately, and legislation affect only government action, such as mask mandates or fines related to restrictions. It doesn’t stop businesses from issuing their own requirements of customers, the governor said.’
Cassandra Fairbanks of The Gateway Pundit reported:
‘Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order on Monday that immediately suspends all COVID restrictions in the state.
DeSantis also signed legislation barring mayors and governors from enacting emergency orders that last longer than 42 days and banned vaccine passports.
“The fact is, we are no longer in a state of emergency,” DeSantis said during the press conference. “I think that’s the evidence-based thing to do.”
“I think folks that are saying that they need to be policing people at this point, if you’re saying that you really are saying you don’t believe in the vaccines, you don’t believe in the data you don’t believe in the science….We are no longer in the state of emergency,” he added.
DeSantis asserted that “we want people to live freely in the state of Florida.”
Private companies can continue to require people to wear masks — but Florida politicians cannot mandate it.’
