Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on Sunday that he is hoping to sign legislation that would give unvaccinated police officers a $5,000 bonus to relocate to his state. DeSantis commented about police officers in other states who are losing their jobs because they are not complying with the COVID vaccine mandate.
“On a scientific basis, most of those first responders have had COVID and have recovered. So they have strong protection and so I think that influences their decision,” he said during an appearance on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures program.
DeSantis called on police officers across the country to relocate to the Sunshine State if they are not being accommodated at their jobs. “If you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here, you can feel important needs for us, and we’ll compensate you as a result,” he said.
