No one is more "pro business" than the GOP, right? More power and outrage instead of progress or policy. The thing is, it's not clear that he can actually do anything that he's talking about, which is par for the course. The courts have shot him down over and over again. There's no law that says he can just arbitrarily appoint people to Reedy Creek. It's not even clear that last summer's law can alter the district.

I still don’t see how this is (Florida’s) constitutional. It specifically states that special districts must be run by the landowners consent and any new special district requires the approval of all the landowners.
