In a move widely seen as retaliation, Gov. Ron DeSantis asked Florida lawmakers on Tuesday to consider the “termination” of self-governing privileges that Disney World has held in the Orlando area for 55 years.

He acted after Disney, the state’s largest private employer, paused political donations in Florida and condemned a new state education law that opponents call “Don’t Say Gay.” The Florida Legislature had already been scheduled to convene this week for a special session on congressional redistricting.

On Tuesday, Mr. DeSantis, a Republican, issued a proclamation allowing the Republican-controlled body to also take up bills that would eliminate special tax districts that were created before 1968.
