DESANTIS ENDS FLORIDA COVID MANDATES/Executive Orders… Signs Bill Banning Social Media ‘Deplatforming,’ ‘Shadow Banning,’ ‘Censoring’

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Florida’s governor said he’s suspending all local emergency orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic effective immediately.

During a news conference in St. Peterburg on Monday, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed an executive order that suspends all local coronavirus mandates right away, and will also invalidate all remaining local emergency COVID-19 orders effective July 1.

“I think the approach here is showing Florida leading the way,” DeSantis said.

Social media companies would be unable to permanently kick people off their platforms under a tough new Florida law.

The bill, passed by the GOP-dominated state Legislature Thursday and awaiting Gov. Ron DeSantis’ signature, would make it a crime to remove state political candidates from Twitter and Facebook, and would mete out penalties of $250,000 a day for any statewide candidate who is deplatformed.

Removing more local candidates would cost the company $25,000 a day.

The bill also requires tech companies to give users seven days notice that they are at risk of being banned and offer them the opportunity to correct the issue. Suspensions of up to 14 days would still be allowed.
