Gov DeSantis Signs Bill Removing Disney’s Self-Governing Authority

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that eliminates Disney’s self-governing authority at its Walt Disney World in Orlando.

The Reedy Creek Improvement District allowed Disney to function as its own regulator on issues such as building codes and municipal services.

CBS News reported on DeSantis and Disney.

DeSantis appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson to discuss his action against Disney.

DeSantis has ignited a backlash for taking on Disney.

President Biden broadened his criticism of DeSantis’ action to include the Republican Party.

“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah also weighed in to criticize DeSantis.

DeSantis is being criticized for taking on Disney but in the bigger picture his action finally demonstrates to CEOs and their shareholders that there is a down side risk to adopting woke policies and doing the work of Democrats.

National Review’s Rich Lowry summarized this thought in a Tweet.

For far too long, corporations were playing a major role in advancing the Democrat agenda and now they may have to think twice.
