U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel readies bill to block Gov. DeSantis' COVID vaccine, mask bans

Congresswoman Lois Frankel will introduce legislation Friday that she said will give local governments and businesses the right to make health and safety decisions.

The bill by the West Palm Beach Democrat would circumvent bans on mask mandates and vaccine passports championed in Florida by Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican lawmakers.

Frankel said the "bill makes it clear" that entities, from school boards to cruise lines, are allowed to implement whatever measures, from requiring face-coverings to the use of vaccine passports, they determine are needed to comply with COVID-19 guidelines issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
