Looking for to raise his inventory together with his Republican base for his presumptive presidential candidacy, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida this yr has checked off many bins on a far-right want record of legal guidelines limiting abortion rights, gender-transition look after minors and instructing about sexual orientation.

Increasing capital punishment and who can carry a hid firearm in his state? Test. Focusing on Disney? Test.

And he might quickly take away a requirement that he resign as governor to run for president.

The frenzy of bill-signings and a culture-war agenda laid the groundwork for the candidacy of Mr. DeSantis, who’s searching for to place himself as a viable various to former President Donald J. Trump, the G.O.P.’s front-runner and a onetime ally.

Listed below are the payments Mr. DeSantis has signed this yr:

In April, Mr. DeSantis signed a regulation that bans abortions after six weeks of being pregnant, making Florida one of many nation’s most restrictive states for reproductive rights. Consequently, the state will now not be a vacation spot for girls from throughout the Deep South searching for abortions.

Emboldened by final yr’s Supreme Court docket determination overturning Roe v. Wade, Republicans used their supermajorities in Florida’s Legislature to advance the measure. It changed a 15-week abortion ban that Mr. DeSantis had signed in April 2022, earlier than the nation’s excessive court docket deserted 50 years of authorized precedent on abortion.

However not like the sooner ban, which Mr. DeSantis promoted with a bill-signing at a church, he ushered within the six-week ban in his workplace late at night time with out public discover, apart from a bunch of supporters who joined him.

The regulation consists of exceptions for rape, incest and to avoid wasting the lifetime of a mom. It received’t take impact till Florida’s Supreme Court docket decides a problem of the 15-week restriction.

In mid-Might as he was finalizing his candidacy for president, Mr. DeSantis signed a measure outlawing gender-transition look after minors and limiting it for adults, the most recent motion by Republicans this yr geared toward L.G.B.T.Q. communities in Florida.

It imposed a penalty of as much as 5 years in jail for docs who violate the ban and requires adults searching for gender-transition care to signal a consent kind.

The instructing of “identification politics,” lengthy a preoccupation of right-wing Republicans, is prohibited at public establishments below the regulation, which additionally weakened tenure protections.

In March, Mr. DeSantis gave conservatives one other trophy, making a common college voucher program. Critics mentioned that the $8,000-per-year profit per scholar would undermine public faculties and additional enrich rich households as a result of it doesn’t have an earnings eligibility cap.

Abortion was not the one situation that Florida took a pointy proper activate this yr: Capital punishment was one other.

In April, Mr. DeSantis signed a invoice that may considerably decrease the edge for imposing the demise penalty. It can now not require a unanimous vote by 12 members of a jury to condemn an individual to die. An 8-to-4 majority can be sufficient below the brand new regulation, which is predicted to face authorized challenges from prison justice reform teams.

The overwhelming majority of the 27 states that enable the demise penalty require unanimous sentencing votes by juries. Alabama is likely one of the exceptions: a 10-to-2 majority suffices. In circumstances of deadlocked juries, judges get to resolve in Indiana and Missouri.

In Florida, Republicans pushed for the demise penalty growth after a jury final yr handed down a life sentence to the person who murdered 17 folks within the 2018 mass capturing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas Excessive Faculty in Parkland, Fla. 9 of the jury’s 12 members voted for the demise penalty.

Across the identical time {that a} tremendous PAC supporting Mr. DeSantis labeled Mr. Trump as a “gun grabber,” the governor signed a regulation in April that enables Floridians to hold hid weapons with out a allow.

As of July 1, gun house owners will now not be required to go a security course and a background examine, a shift away from requires harder gun legal guidelines within the state after mass shootings in 2018 in Parkland and in 2016 on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Mr. DeSantis and his allies have sought to forged Mr. Trump as squishy on the Second Modification, with the tremendous PAC suggesting that the previous president “minimize and run like a coward” on gun rights points when he was within the White Home.

In an escalation of the hostilities between Mr. DeSantis and Disney, which Republicans have become an avatar of “woke” tradition, the governor signed a sequence of payments concentrating on the corporate and its autonomy over a particular taxing district that’s dwelling to Disney World.

The measure, which Republicans and the Florida Division of Regulation Enforcement claimed was wanted for safety causes, will create a veil of secrecy over who’s paying for the journey of Mr. DeSantis and the way he’s dividing his time as governor and a presidential candidate.

Even Mr. Trump has latched onto the problem, saying in a press release from his marketing campaign in April that Mr. DeSantis was not being clear about how a lot taxpayer cash he was spending on journey.

Nonetheless, there may be one other invoice awaiting Mr. DeSantis’s signature that’s intertwined together with his political ambitions. It might instantly get rid of a requirement that he resign as governor to run for president. He may not even want a pen: It can routinely take impact if unsigned.
