Florida and 20 other states sue to end mask mandates on airlines, public transportation

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced on March 29 Florida and 20 other states are suing the federal government in an effort to end mask mandates on airplanes and other public transportation.

The lawsuit was filed only about three weeks before the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is set to end its mask mandate on April 18.

Florida is joined by Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia in the lawsuit.

“President Biden’s shortsighted, heavy-handed and unlawful travel policies are frustrating travelers and causing chaos on public transportation,” Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said in a statement. “It’s long past time to alleviate some of the pressure on travelers and those working in the travel industry by immediately ending Biden’s unlawful public transportation mandates.”

The TSA has declined to comment on pending litigation.
