Tri-State Travel Ban
Edius 1
Constitutional questions are being raised over whether the Governor can order air passengers from virus infected areas to self quarantine, and as Mike Vasilinda tells us, if those passengers wanted to slip into the state they could do it at small airports where there is no screening.

The isolation order is slated to remain in effect until it’s lifted, and constitutional experts say the indefinite timeline could also be a constitutional problem.
Tri-State Travel Ban package Script:
There are at least 53 daily flights scheduled from Atlanta to the smaller airports like Gainesville, Tallahassee, Sarasota, Pensacola and Panama City, where passengers fleeing the New York Tri-State area could head to Florida and avoid being told too quarantine.
The Governor is unhappy that anyone from that area is coming at all.
Sot: Ron Desantis
Governor
“And if you are somebody who left, you know if you were in New York State, you left when you were told to shelter in place. You defied that and you got on a plane and came here. And so we don’t want there to be any fallout here in the state of Florida from that.”
The executive order, which is being handed out to arriving passengers in major airports, tells them to quarantine for at least two weeks after arriving.
Violating it potentially carries a 60 day jail sentence an a $500 fine.
Sot: Ron Desantis
Governor
“You can’t get a flight from China to Florida or anywhere in the country, but somehow, you can just do 200 flights, direct, into various parts of Florida, from a hotspot that’s much more significant.”
Mike Vasilinda Standup
“And while there are no National Guardsmen meeting arriving passengers here in the state capital. It’s almost a moot point. Most flights here are cancelled.”
Several civil rights organizations are looking at whether the order violates the interstate commerce clause and a clause the prohibits discriminating against people from other states.
But a UF law professor who asked to remain anonymous says by the time any challenge made it to court, the problem would likely be over.

Along with putting legislation on hold, the Governor has also chosen to delay the appointment of two Supreme Court Justices, which were required to be selected by March 23rd.
Legal Slowdown PACKAGE
Florida lawmakers passed 210 bills during the 2020 session, but only a handful have actually made it to the Governor, who has asked the Legislature to hold them as his focus is elsewhere.
SOT Governor Ron DeSantis
(R) Florida
“My office has been 24/7 on COVID-19.”
And his schedule shows, every item on his agenda has been coronavirus related.
If the Legislature were to send him bills, he’d have 15 days to veto, sign or let them become law.
SOT Governor Ron DeSantis
(R) Florida
“I think it would probably not be a good use of my time to be going through a lot of the legislation right now.”
There’s also the question of how badly the economy will be hit, which puts almost everything in question, including a proposed $500 million allocation for teacher pay raises.
SOT Fedrick Ingram
President, Florida Education Association
“We’re a significant part of that budget this year.”
We spoke with Florida Education Association President Fedrick Ingram on Skype.
He hopes the Governor considers the role teachers are playing throughout the outbreak, including their shift to online learning.
SOT Fedrick Ingram
President, Florida Education Association
“I think if you put out any survey parents will tell you that teachers are first responders. They’re educational first responders.”
Jake
“The Governor did say he doesn’t want to jeopardize teacher pay, but also doesn’t want to act hastily during these uncertain times.”
SOT Governor Ron DeSantis
(R) Florida
“The budget is in flux, let’s just put it that way. So I’m not going to go do a signing ceremony tomorrow about any of this stuff until we kind of get our feet under us a little bit more.”
If signed, the pay raises would take effect July 1st,.
$400 million for raising base teacher pay and another $100 million for veteran teachers and other school staff.
