Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has continued his posturing against The Walt Disney Company, earlier today announcing that he will be calling a special session to discuss the termination of the Reedy Creek Improvement District (via Orlando Sentinel). The announcement is the latest in what has become a one-sided war against Disney. Disney has not made a public statement since last month.
And so yes, they will be considering their congressional map. But they also will be considering the termination of all special districts that were enacted in Florida prior to 1968. And that includes the Reedy Creek Improvement District.
The call to terminate the Reedy Creek Improvement District was born from a retaliation of sorts by a lawmaker against what he called “woke” decisions by the company. The movement has gained traction, with DeSantis somewhat dancing around a direct call to repeal the Reedy Creek Improvement Act until today. DeSantis called the termination “very important”.
Disney has not publically responded to any calls to remove the special taxing district that has been in place for over 50 years now.
