A packed cabin full of passengers erupted in applause this week as the pilot notified the travelers of an abrupt end to Joe Biden’s mask mandate on public transportation.
The Captain informed the passengers just moments after a federal judge in Florida ruled the CDC’s mask requirement breached their “statutory authority.”
“The decision Monday by U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle in Tampa also said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) improperly failed to justify its decision and did not follow proper rulemaking according to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA),” reports CBS News.
“The court concludes that the mask mandate exceeds the CDC’s statutory authority and violates the procedures required for agency rulemaking under the APA,” the judge explained. “Accordingly, the court vacates the mandate and remands it to the CDC.”
