The Florida House has passed a bill that passed through the Florida Senate yesterday that would allow for the Florida Department of Transportation to take over inspections of the Walt Disney World monorail system.
Like other legislation that has taken place this session, the bill and amendment are narrowly written to only include “fixed-guideway systems” in an independent special district that spans two counties. The only fixed-guideway system this applies to is the Walt Disney World monorail system. The bill is another punitive action from the Republican majority of the Florida legislature in the ongoing Disney vs DeSantis spat.
The bill, which ended up being HB 1305, passed through the Florida Senate with a 26-14 vote and passed through the Florida House with a 83-32 vote.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has not commented on this specific bill but has previously offered support for any bill from the Florida legislature that would punish Disney World.
