Disney CEO: Does Florida want our jobs and taxes or not?

“Disney CEO Bob Iger said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’[s] attacks on the company threaten its plans for $17 billion of investment and 13,000 new jobs at Disney World over the next 10 years. In comments Wednesday during a call with investors, Iger defended Disney as Florida attempts to wrest control of powers granted to a special taxing district overseeing Disney World’s zoning decisions. Disney and Florida are locked in a legal battle. Iger did not mention DeSantis by name or explicitly say Disney is reconsidering its planned investment. But he said Florida is acting unfairly to the company and asked: ‘Does the state want us to invest more, employ more people and pay more taxes or not?'” (05/11/23)
