Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Signs Bill To Remove Disney’s Special Tax Status In Political Payback
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a bill on Friday that would remove a special tax district that has allowed Wat Disney Company to control the land where the theme park is located. The removal was passed by GOP lawmakers after the company opposed legislation restricting classroom direction on gender and sexuality.
DeSantis tweeted, “In Florida, we will be educating our children, not indoctrinating them.”

State Sen. Janet Cruz (D-Flordia) isn’t in favor of DeSantis’s actions. “I have this vision of a mousetrap that we’ve created, and I see us leaning on the neck of the mouse for 12 months, just to step on Mickey’s neck,” Cruz said.
The special tax district, known as the Reedy Creek Improvement District, spares the company millions from certain taxes and fees related to emergencies and road maintenance.
