JUST IN: FL State Senate Delivers Massive Blow To Disney

The GOP-led Senate from the state of Florida has delivered a massive blow to Disney by passing a bill on Wednesday that will eliminate a special taxing district that allows the Walt Disney Co. to govern the land where the theme park is located.

“The measure potentially delivers a blow to the company’s operations in the state,” The Wall Street Journal stated in its report. “The special district, created in 1967 and known as the Reedy Creek Improvement District, exempts Disney from a host of regulations and certain taxes and fees related to emergency services and road maintenance.”

The report then pointed out that the special taxing district saves the Disney company tens of millions of dollars a year. So, again, if this bill passes the Republican-led House of Representatives, it will become law, as Gov. Ron DeSantis is already prepared to sign the bill into law.

“What I would say as a matter of first principle is I don’t support special privileges in law just because a company is powerful and they’ve been able to wield a lot of power,” DeSantis stated during a press conference held last month. “I think what has happened is there’s a lot of these special privileges that are not justifiable, but because Disney had held so much sway, they were able to sustain a lot of special treatment over the years.”

Disney has truly brought this upon themselves. They decided to side with folks who want to groom children by teaching them issues about sexuality and gender at an age when they do not need to be taught such things. It’s disgusting.

So now, DeSantis has countered their antics and they are going to pay a price for it. As they should.
