A federal judge in Florida struck-down an order from the Biden administration Monday that required face-masks on airplanes and other forms of public transportation like buses and trains.

“The decision Monday by U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle in Tampa also said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) improperly failed to justify its decision and did not follow proper rulemaking according to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA),” reports CBS News.

“The court concludes that the mask mandate exceeds the CDC’s statutory authority and violates the procedures required for agency rulemaking under the APA,” the judge wrote. “Accordingly, the court vacates the mandate and remands it to the CDC.”

The CDC recently extended the mask mandate on public transit through May 3rd after the order was set to expire on April 18th.
