...The Florida House just passed the bill (that already cleared their Senate) to revoke Disney's special tax and governance status in Florida:

The bill passed by the legislature on Thursday would eliminate the Reedy Creek Improvement District, as the Disney government is known, as well as a handful of other similar districts by June 2023. The measure does allow for the districts to be reestablished, leaving an avenue to renegotiate its future. It now moves to DeSantis’ office to be signed into law.

Democrats have criticized the proposal as clear retaliation against the company and warned that local homeowners could get hit with big tax bills if they have to absorb bond debt from Disney — although such details are far from clear.


Boom. The left used to be about "big corporations have too much power, man" but those days seem to be over.

I suppose Disney could go to a more friendly state in a warm climate - oh, right. Those are all pretty much red states except for California, and they're already there.
