Orange County leaders discuss millions given to canceled Pulse nightclub museum

ORLANDO, Fla. — The board of county commissioners in Orange County met on Tuesday to discuss money that was given to a now-canceled Pulse museum.


On the agenda is the use of tourism development tax money by the onePULSE Foundation.

Earlier this month, the foundation was sent a letter from the county saying it violated their agreement on how that money is used.

A lot of the issues have to do with plans for a Pulse museum.

The Pulse museum was promised to Orange County residents, Pulse survivors, and victims’ families.

Those impacted by the Pulse nightclub attack have been looking forward to it as a place to honor those lives lost back in 2016.

Now, the onePULSE museum isn’t happening.

With the announcement, survivors and families of the Pulse nightclub tragedy are left demanding answers about the millions of dollars the foundation received.
