Gov. Ron DeSantis signs bill to protect Florida’s cattle industry, stop lab grown meat

HARDEE COUNTY, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis held a press conference Wednesday morning where he gave Hardee County officials a $6 million check to help build an industrial site in the region.

DeSantis signed Senate Bill 1084 at the Hardee County Cattleman’s Arena to ban the sale and manufacture of synthetic meat, which he denounced as “fake meat,” and also prevent local governments from regulating electric vehicle charging stations.

“Today, Florida is fighting back against the global elite’s plan to force the world to eat meat grown in a petri dish or bugs to achieve their authoritarian goals,” said DeSantis. “Our administration will continue to focus on investing in our local farmers and ranchers, and we will save our beef.”

But once again they protect a narrow special interest. What will they ban next? Tofu?

It seems to me that this bill should count as illegal restraint of trade.
