- Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced on Monday that the state legislature is introducing a bill to revoke a quiet last-minute deal that a Disney-controlled special district board made with the company shortly before a new state-controlled board was set to take over.
- The former board signed an agreement to transfer its power to the company on February 8 and the agreement was recorded with the Orange County Comptroller on February 9 — the same day that the Florida House passed legislation that renamed the Reedy Creek Improvement District to the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District and removed Disney’s self-appointed board and replaced it with a board appointed by the governor.
- “They [Disney] are not superior to the laws that are enacted by the state of Florida,” DeSantis said during a press conference.
