In clarifying comments about his willingness to end “special privileges” for Disney World, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took the idea of repealing the 1967 Reedy Creek Improvement Act head on this afternoon (via Orlando Sentinel). Here’s what DeSantis had to say about a movement that has “a lot of discussion” around it:
As the governor, I could be presented with changes to that. I think I’ve said I’d be receptive to that. But ultimately, the Legislature would have to move forward. So I know that there’s a lot of discussion about that. And we’ll just see how that shakes out.
I think a lot of those things that have accumulated over the years would probably not be justifiable. …I was shocked to see some of the stuff that’s in there. They could do their own nuclear power plant. Is there any other private company in the state that can just build a nuclear power plant on their own?
The feud between DeSantis and Disney has become more one-sided recently after Disney took a public stance against the “Don’t Say Gay” law.
