Wow, I Didn’t Even Know a State Could Do This

I said before that I didn’t know how Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) could fight OSHA. Apparently there’s a way.

Florida will consider removing itself from OSHA, banning employer vaccine mandates in special legislative session | Blogs (orlandoweekly.com)

I’m really curious to see how this works out.

The lengthy process to move away from OSHA, a desire of Sprowls and Simpson, could separate the state from federal regulations placed on employers and workers.
“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,” Sprowls said. “We want out of OSHA. We'll submit our own regulatory authority and say goodbye to the federal government.”
The OSHA proposal, sponsored by Sen. Travis Hutson, R-St. Augustine, and Rep. Ardian Zika, R-Land O’ Lakes, is listed as “the first step” in a process that could take several years.

Huh. Fascinating.
