Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has floated the possibility of building a state prison near Disney World in Orlando as part of his ongoing political war with the woke company.
In a press conference Monday, DeSantis outlined his latest countermeasures against the Walt Disney Co., saying Florida’s legislature is working to effectively revoke Disney’s backdoor agreements, which the Reedy Creek Improvement District’s board of supervisors snuck into place in a last-ditch attempt to thwart the DeSantis-approved board’s coming to power.
DeSantis suggested several ideas about what to do with land that falls within Reedy Creek but doesn’t belong to Disney.
“What should we do with this land? People have said maybe create a state park, maybe try to do more amusement parks, someone even said like, maybe you need another state prison,” he said. “Who knows? I just think the possibilities are endless.”
