Combating BDS Act of 2017

January 17, 2017
January 17, 2017
Referred to Senate (sub)committee

In an effort to undermine the growing BDS movement, this bill would authorize state and local governments to adopt measures barring contracts with or investment in persons or entities that engage in BDS, as well as organizations that control such entities. Like prior versions of this bill in the 114th Congress (S. 2531 and H.R. 4514 of 2/10/16), the measure would define any BDS action focusing on “Israeli-controlled territories,” including Israel’s settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, as “targeting Israel.”
