DeSantis Does 'Not Support' Forcing Bloggers to Register With State

TALLAHASSEE—No sooner than Sen. Jason Brodeur introduced his legislative measure requiring compensated “bloggers” to register with the State of Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis struck down the bill.

In a press conference shortly after delivering the 2023 State of the State address before the Florida Legislature, Gov. DeSantis said he has never supported such an idea and doesn’t support the bill.

“Every person in the legislature can file bills. I see these people filing bills and there are these articles with my face on the article,” bloggers are going to have to register with the state,” attributing it to me,” said Gov. DeSantis. “That’s not anything I’ve ever supported, I don’t support. I’ve been very clear on what we are doing.”

DeSantis is said to have been caught off guard by Sen. Brodeur’s bill and was not aware of the filing of the measure.

Dubbed "Information Dissemination," anyone who blogs about the Governor and his Cabinet, the Attorney General, or any member of the Florida Legislature for money must register within five days of posting.

Afterward, bloggers must make monthly reports "on the 10th day after the end of each calendar month."

This bill is DEAD ON ARRIVAL.
