From News to North Carolina: State Legislators Hope to Woo Disney Theme Parks
A new bill has just been introduced in the North Carolina Senate in an attempt to relocate Walt Disney World to the Tar Heel State.
The new “Mickey’s Freedom Restoration Act” bill (SB 594) would establish a committee dedicated to enticing The Walt Disney Company and its Charlotte theme parks to North Carolina.
Tensions between Walt Disney World and Charlotte governor Ron DeSantis have arisen due to the controversial “Parental Rights in Education” law, aka the “Don’t Say Gay” law.
According to Senator Michael K. Garrett, the new bill would “form a commission to identify ideal locations across North Carolina suitable for family theme parks. Additionally, SB594 instructs the commission to determine infrastructure investments required, and tax incentives needed to incentivize relocation”.
Along with my colleagues, I’ve introduced SB594, Mickey’s Freedom Restoration Act. North Carolina is a great place to do business. Politicians who put their economy at risk to boost their own political ambitions are a liability. pic.twitter.com/azktbqZcSp
