In a lawsuit filed Thursday, DeSantis alleged the president overstepped his legal authority.
The 28-page suit also argues that the administration has no legal grounds to mandate such a sweeping requirement and that Biden’s rule violates procurement law.
The state is seeking an immediate injunction to the rule, which is slated to take effect December 8th.
DeSantis is a staunch Trump ally who has opposed COVID-19 restrictions at the state, local and federal level.
He has prohibited mask mandates and banned businesses from requiring proof of vaccination.
