The Florida Legislature has moved to officially strip Disney of its self-governing status, according to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’s office.
The state Legislature announced Friday that it is ending the self-governing status of the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID), where Walt Disney World is located.
DeSantis signed legislation stripping the company of its special tax status in April, Slay News reported at the time.
The move came following the company’s public opposition to the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which DeSantis signed into law.
“This company had a deal, unlike any company or individual in all of the state of Florida, probably anywhere in the United States,” DeSantis told Fox News host Tucker Carlson at the time.
“They were self-governing, they had extraordinary powers, they could build nuclear power plants, they didn’t have to go through permitting processes and obviously a lot of tax benefits. And that’s just inappropriate.”
