Florida mulls U-turn on move to strip Disney theme-parks of self governing status- FT

The lawmakers in April gave approval to a bill ending Disney’s designation as a self-governing entity in an apparent response to its opposition to a new state law limiting the teaching of LGBTQ issues in schools.
