Combating BDS Act of 2017

H.R.2856
Introduced: 
June 8, 2017
115
First
June 8, 2017
Referred to House (sub)committee

Like similar bill S. 170 of 1/17/17, this bill would undermine the growing BDS movement by authorizing 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.”
