Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis

(The Center Square) – Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law prohibiting governmental entities, including state agencies and local governments, from contracting with carriers that “knowingly transport illegal aliens into Florida,” he announced Thursday.

After signing the bill, DeSantis directed the Department of Management Services to immediately begin the rulemaking process to implement the provisions of the new law. He also directed executive agencies to review all current contracts, notify all applicable vendors of requirements of the law, and communicate to any vendors that are currently transporting illegal immigrants into Florida that their contracts will not be renewed or amended unless they comply with Florida law.
