Florida Governor DeSantis ends Disney’s self-governing power

World Today


Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis has thrown the latest punch in his ongoing battle with entertainment giant Disney. New rules strip the company’s self-governing status in the state. This follows the controversy that erupted last year over Disney’s opposition to the governor’s move to quash discussion of sexual orientation and gender issues in classrooms. It also comes as DeSantis is widely expected to launch a presidential bid for 2024.
