The Orlando Sentinel reports:
The state will likely assume control of Disney World’s Reedy Creek Improvement District, rather than local governments absorbing it, Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday. DeSantis said he is working on a proposal that likely will be considered by the Legislature after the November elections.
Reedy Creek, which encompasses Disney World and neighboring properties, is set to dissolve on June 1, 2023. The governor’s office hasn’t released a written plan detailing how the dissolution of Disney World’s private government will unfold.
At an event in Sanford, DeSantis also insisted Central Florida taxpayers will not be forced to absorb the district’s nearly $1 billion in debt. Under state law, the district’s assets and liabilities would be transferred to the “local general purpose government” when it’s abolished.
Read the full article. In other words, every Floridian will eat that billion dollars, not just the residents of Orange and Osceola counties.
Can you spell G-O-V-E-R-N-M-E-N-T-A-L O-V-E-R-R-E-A-C-H
Make no mistake, if the law they passed was fine and dandy, this part would’ve been initially included. Fucking idiots.
Florida residents are going to pay for DeSantis’ asshole moves for decades to come, just like we’re all paying for Trump’s.
I guess Floridians can either smarten up and organize or let this showboating asshole take you down the tubes with him.
This shitshow is a portent of America’s immediate future.
Why anyone would choose to do business in Florida after this is a mystery.
