Talk with MoodyCavuto asked what the fallout would be, as some fear it could lead to higher taxes, “especially in affected counties that include the Magic Kingdom.”
Moody responded that the special district was created “because they believed it was in the best interest of the state to do so and it had not been reviewed or reassessed.” She went on to say that the situation had changed, where Florida lawmakers were acting on parents’ right to what their children were learning in school.
“And you brought out this company that had been given so much autonomy and control within the state, and specifically in a very fraudulent and false way, started this smear campaign against lawyers,” he said. she declared.
Cavuto pushed back: “I understand all of your concerns about how this law has been misinterpreted. I understand. But let it chase them with a sledgehammer here, and under more than 50 years of Republican and Democratic governors, no one is threatened or acts like that. They all agreed with this special exemption that Disney had because it benefited Disney and Florida…do you think you’re going too far? »
Cavuto’s provocative question came in reaction to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signing a bill on Friday that would eliminate private government from Disney World, a move reportedly prompted by Disney’s opposition to a new state law dubbed “Don’t Say Gay”.

The newly approved bill would eliminate Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District, as the government is known, along with other similar districts by June 2023. The measure allows the districts to be reinstated, leaving room to renegotiate its future. The law would have significant tax implications for Disney.
