Florida lawmakers gave final approval to a bill that would end a special tax district that allows Walt Disney to govern the land housing its theme parks, sending the measure to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has made clear he would sign it.

The GOP-led House passed the bill 70-38 on Thursday, a day after the Senate approved it 23-16. Mr. DeSantis called for lawmakers to take up the measure in a special session he convened this week, after sparring with Disney over the company’s opposition to legislation restricting classroom instruction on gender and sexuality.
