Florida Senate Passes Law Terminating Disney’s Special Status

Objectivity 3.2 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.6

The Florida Senate approved a bill Wednesday that dissolves special self-governing status given to Disney over 50 years ago. The Reedy Creek Improvement District is a measure that allowed the company to act with the same authority and responsibility as a county government. “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,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said.
