Arizona Drops Anti-ESG Rules While Florida Fights "Woke Banking"
DeSantis called it a push against “these elites” attempting to “inject political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and really just the every day economy,”
Arizona will no longer participate in investigations into banks and other financial institutions over ESG investing practices, according to a statement from the state’s new Attorney General, Kris Mayes. “it is not the place of government to tell corporations and their investors that they cannot invest in sustainable technologies and practices or improve their governance processes.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke at Florida SouthWestern State college’s Collier Campus in Naples. Signage at the event read “Government of Laws, Not Woke Politics.” The governor proposed new legislation to end ESG “woke” banking.
