Florida is fighting back against the federal government for continuing to enforce mask mandates for public transportation.

DeSantis calls these mask mandates “COVID theater.”

“If you look at what’s going on around the country, in Florida we’ve been very clear that we want people to make their own decisions, we don’t believe in COVID theater,” the governor said.

“Though you do see lingering elements of that even the most restrictive states are starting to repeal vaccine passports and some of these mandates. You still have this federal rule that was just extended forcing people to wear masks on airplanes,” he continued.

Biden and the Democrats claim the mask policy is “based on science,” despite obvious contradictions in the policy.

For example, if you are eating and drinking, then it’s safe to remove your mask on public transportation. On the other hand, if you are reading and no longer eating or drinking, then suddenly the situation is dangerous and your mask must be immediately secured around your mouth and nose.

Further, DeSantis explained that the policy is also different depending on if you’re sitting in a window seat or middle seat.

“It’s turned the airlines into having to police this, it’s created a lot of unruly passenger situations because it’s so frustrating for people and so this is something that I’ve been opposed to for a long time,” DeSantis said.

“I think most people thought this was going to go the way of the buffalo, first you have an extension, then you have Fauci coming out saying they may need to impose additional restrictions in the future and we need to let people live their life,” DeSantis said.

“Obviously in Florida where we have control, we do that, but in this federal mandate for air travel, I think as good as we’ve done in domestic tourism, and we’re the number one state that people want to come to, I think more people would want to fly if they did not have to have that for two hours, two and a half hours.”

He said Moody would be “leading the effort. She’s leading the effort to bring a legal challenge on this. I think it’s important of itself, but I also think there’s an important legal principal at stake, so I support her efforts on this.”

The policy the litigation is based on is a recently renewed U.S. Department of Transportation ruling for wearing masks on airplanes. Recently, DeSantis called the rule a “farce.” The policy itself is expected to expire by April 18, with the lawsuit announced today to begin just over two weeks before the mandate itself ends.

The AG elaborated on the state’s efforts, saying Florida was not alone in its latest litigation effort.

“This morning the State of Florida, joined by 20 other states, has filed an action against the Biden administration and multiple parties within to challenge the mandatory mask mandate in transportation hubs and on airplanes,” Moody said. “This rule, this order is completely outside the bounds of the scope of federal power, as we have argued successfully in numerous other cases. The CDC and the federal government and Biden administration never had the power to issue this order originally, and now we are seeing that almost 75% of these unruly, sometimes violent incidents are based on this unlawful mask mandate.”

Moody also weighed in on the unruly passenger rules, particularly the liability concerns for those taken off airplanes. She said people were taking their frustrations out on employees of airlines, but it was due to what she called an unlawful and unfounded rule and order by the U.S. government.

“Many people don’t realize that this unlawful order carries not just civil penalties, but criminal penalties. Although in the same order they mandated folks, unfounded, unnecessarily wear masks throughout the United States and transportation hubs and that includes taxis and Ubers and ferries and all of these other transportation methods, not just planes, they also included in it a criminal penalty,” Moody said. “So you can imagine if you are a flight attendant or someone who works within an airport or on a ferry or an Uber driver, you are now charged with enforcing this unreasonable requirement.”
