President Biden’s national mask mandate covering airplanes and other public transportation was voided by a federal judge in Florida.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently extended the mandate through May 3.
But U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, an appointee of former President Trump, in Tampa said the CDC failed to follow the proper rule-making and failed to justify the decision.
“The Court concludes that th Mask Mandate exceeds the CDC’s statutory authority and violates the procedures required for agency rule making under the APA,” Mizelle wrote in her opinion. “Accordingly, the Court vacates the Mandate and remands it to the CDC.”

Shortly after the announcement, the TSA announced they would not fight the ruling.
“The agencies are reviewing the decision and assessing potential next steps,” a Biden administration official said. “In the meantime, today’s court decision means CDC’s public transportation masking order is not in effect at this time.”
“Therefore, TSA will not enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs at this time,” the official said.
National radio host Todd Starnes celebrated the ruling and thanked former President Trump.
“Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty our airlines are free at last,” Starnes said.
“Somebody should warn Ilhan Omar that Christians may be breaking out in worship songs onboard American jetliners today,” Starnes added.
