Reedy Creek Takeover Bill Passes Florida Senate

After passing through the Florida House of Representatives yesterday with a vote of 82-31, the bill for the state to take over Reedy Creek Improvement District has passed the Florida Senate with a vote of 26-9. It will go to Governor Ron DeSantis next and he’s expected to sign it into law.

House Bill 9B will rename the district the Central Florida Tourism Oversight Board and consist of a board appointed only by the governor of members who cannot have worked in the theme park industry within three years. It will no longer dissolve the district on June 1, 2023.

Walt Disney World will no longer lose their tax exemptions as the district is not being dissolved, just renamed and given a governor-appointed board.
