Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has officially signed the 'Stop Woke' legislative measure into law. The Florida Legislature just a few days ago initiated a special session with their sights set on ending the corporation’s unique tax status.

This saga started in late March when Disney came out against the bill saying, “Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have been passed and should never have been signed into law,” according to a company statement. The bill is designed to prohibit educators in Florida to teach about gender identity and sexual orientation to children in grades kindergarten through 3rd grade.

The governor said in a tweet:

“Today, I signed a bill that ends the woke indoctrination in our schools and workplaces. We are giving parents, students and employees the ability to fight back.”

“By signing this legislation, which is the first in the nation to end corporate wokeness and Critical Race Theory in our schools, we are prioritizing education not indoctrination,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “We will always fight to protect our children and parents from this Marxist-inspired curriculum.”

Perhaps this signage will finally put this saga to rest. Or maybe it’s just beginning. With midterms just around the corner and the Presidential cycle appearing right after that, this could be brought up at primary debates, vice-presidential debates, or even presidential debates.
