MidPoint: DeSantis’ “Anti-Woke” Investments of State Funds

Gov. DeSantis announced a new “Stop Woke” policy to bar investments of State funds in companies or funds that adopt Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles. Florida will no longer consider using issues like climate change or racial justice awareness to influence investments by rating a company’s values. Adam Hattersley, candidate for Florida Chief Financial Officer, and State Rep. Andrew Learned discussed this new policy and Florida’s refusal to divest from Russian investments, and how this may impact Florida’s finances and pensioners’ retirements.
