States Lifting Indoor Mask Mandates
Hochul will make the announcement on Wednesday as other Democrat-run states make the same changes.
It is unclear if Hochul will lift the mandate for schools.
Just two weeks ago Kathy Hochul waged war with an appellate judge who overturned her mask mandate.
A New York State Supreme Court judge two weeks ago ruled Governor Kathy Hochul’s mask mandate “unconstitutional” and declared it null and void.
The judge, who is out of Nassau County, said Hochul had no authority to enact the mask mandate without the state legislature because she no longer has emergency powers.
From Breitbart News:
News broke that New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker will announce their decisions to lift mask mandates in their states after a flood of other Democrat governors led the way forward.
Earlier this week, Democrat governors, including New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, Delaware Gov. John Carney, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, and California Gov. Gavin Newsom, announced their decisions to lift mask mandates in their states.
The sudden turnaround shows that even Democrats realize voters are ready to move beyond masking mandates, especially for children in school.
The White House on Tuesday signaled they would not be lifting mask mandates, indicating that instead Biden would follow the advice of the CDC.
Are these mandates being lifted as a response to the Canadian protests? Are leaders trying to stay ahead of any impending protest in our own nation about masks? Is it as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said, “the medical science didn’t change, the political science did.”
