Disney Proves to Be Sneaky…DeSantis Responds! – Watch
The state of Florida passed legislation that stripped Disney of its self-governing status, but the multinational corporation had a last-minute, sneaky attempt to undermine the real changes.
Before the past board was sent packing and replaced with a new state-appointed board, it moved to give Disney broad power to further develop land on the outskirts of the counties it is in.
This preserved some of the self-governing power that Florida tried to end.
The mainstream press cheered left-leaning Disney, just look at this intro from NBC News:
“Forget about Disney princesses. Mickey Mouse might have just proved who’s the real king of Florida.
While Disney remained quiet on the matter for months, it seems the House of Mouse had been hatching a plan to retain its control over the land within the outer limits of Orange and Osceola counties.
On Feb. 8, the day before the Florida House voted to put DeSantis in charge, the previous Disney-allied board signed a long-lasting development agreement that drastically limits the control that can be exercised over the company and its district.
As part of a 30-year development agreement, Disney no longer needs board approval to build high-density projects or buildings of any height and can sell or assign development rights. It also bans the board from using Disney’s name or any of its characters.”
Some of the opponents of Gov. DeSantis chimed in on the Disney song and harped on the idea that the governor had failed.
But never fear, DeSantis is ready to strike back at the Disney empire.
You may have just heard a mouse squeal.
The agreements the prior RCID board attempted to shove through at the 11th hour are likely invalid. pic.twitter.com/ixeOwIFCZr
