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.

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.
