- Disney filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis alleging he and other state Republican lawmakers having a “targeted campaign of government retaliation,” over the so-called 2020 “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
- Disney World had self-governing privileges that DeSantis threatened to revoke after the company snubbed him last year when he signed a law in 2022 that his opponents labeled the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.”
- The bill that was signed into law bans discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in public school classrooms from grades kindergarten through third. Supporters of HB1557 supported it because they believed it gave parents more of a say in their child’s education.
