Florida Taxpayers Sue Governor DeSantis Over Plans to Dismantle Reedy Creek Improvement District

    According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, residents of Osceola County have filed a lawsuit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for DeSantis’ plans to dismantle the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID).

    In the lawsuit, the residents claim that DeSantis is violating Disney’s First Amendment rights to free speech after DeSantis admitted that the law to dissolve Reedy Creek has stemmed from Disney’s stance in support of LGBTQIA+ communities.

    Current law would place the $1 billion of debt that RCID has onto the state and likely onto Orange County and Osceola County. That would result in a historic tax hike on residents, according to local officials.

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says that he has a plan and will unveil it in the coming weeks. Disney is reportedly working behind the scenes to attempt to keep much of their special taxing district in place while helping DeSantis save face in a situation that a majority of Americans do not support.

    3. Once Disney status is removed they will have to pay for water they will have to pay for sewage disposal they will not get all those breaks as a farm owner I have to go by consumptive use permits that they are exempt from let them pay for a few things

    4. DeSantis is a total airhead, bigot, control freak among other unmentionables. It’s very frightening. I can’t stand him. I hope his days are limited.
