Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 739 - This act creates the "Anti-Discrimination Against Israel Act". Under this act, public entities are prohibited from entering into certain contracts with a company unless the contract includes a written certification that the company is not currently engaged in, and agrees for the duration of the contract not to engage in, a boycott of goods or services from the State of Israel or any company, or person or entity, doing business with or in the State of Israel. Any contract failing to comply with the provisions of this act shall be void against public policy.

This act does not apply to contracts with a total potential value of less than $100,000 or to contractors with fewer than 10 employees.

This act is substantially similar to HCS/HB 2179 (2020), HB 1344 (2020), HB 1738 (2020), SB 308 (2019), HB 1006 (2019), SCS/SB 849 (2018), and the perfected HB 2179 (2018).
