WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday signed a bill to dismantle the Walt Disney Company's 55-year-old government, saying the "corporate kingdom finally comes to an end."
DeSantis signed the bill after having battled with Reedy Creek Improvement District since the company took a public stance against the Parental Rights in Education law, labeled by critics as the "Don't Say Gay" bill.
House Republicans approved the legislation earlier in February, according to the Associated Press.
"We want our kids to be kids," DeSantis said during the news conference at Reedy Creek Fire Station #4. "We want them to be able to enjoy entertainment, school, without having an agenda imposed upon them."
DeSantis also promised that any municipal debt will be paid by Disney, not the Florida taxpayers.
