Read SB 11 

This anti-boycott bill prohibits state investments in entities that boycott Israel or companies based in Israel or territories controlled by Israel. The bill calls for the creation of a blacklist of companies that boycott Israel and requires public retirement systems to divest from these companies. The bill does not require divestment if investments in companies on the blacklist are less than 0.5% of the value of a retirement system’s holdings.
