A Democrat judgein Texas invited Disney to move out from Florida to Texas after Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law stripping Disney’s tax privilege and special self-governing status.
As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on Friday that terminates all special districts that were enacted in Florida prior to 1968, including Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District. The new law will remove Disney’s tax privilege and special governing status.
The Reedy Creek Improvement District, which state lawmakers created in 1967, is the governing jurisdiction and special taxing district for the land of Walt Disney World Resort.
“You’re a corporation based in Burbank, California, and you’re gonna marshal your economic might to attack the parents of my state,” DeSantis said. “We view that as a provocation, and we’re going to fight back against that.”
Amid its ongoing feud, Judge KP George invited Disney company to move to Fort Bend County, Texas.
The Democrat judge penned a letter addressed to Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek on April 21, saying Fort Bend County is a “unique place” and a “diverse place to do business.”
“Our residents and families compose the most diverse county in the United States, deliver extremely high graduation rates, and are one of the top capita purchasers in Texas, have lots of wide open and affordable land, while also being strategically located for the most efficient distribution of goods domestically and internationally including the best access to both inland and water ports in Texas,” George wrote.
“While you, your company, employees and diverse fans face authoritarian, anti-business and culture war attacks from extremists in Florida, we in Fort Bend are more ready to welcome the Disney family with thousands of good-paying jobs and billions of dollars of investments,” George added.
“I invite you to visit Fort Bend County and see for yourself why our community is the best place for a new Walt Disney World Resort,” George concluded.
Of course, the liberal judge has no power to grant the company such benefits in Texas.
From Timone & Pumba to Tinker Bell, Disney characters are as diverse as Fort Bend County families. I welcome @Disney to visit Fort Bend County as your next destination while you face attacks from the modern day political extremists like @RonDeSantisFL. pic.twitter.com/UMtvN4Cudj
