Read HB 1368 (2023) 

This anti-boycott bill prohibits any public entity from entering into a contract with a company unless the contract includes a written certification that the company is not engaged in, and agrees for the duration of the contract not to engage in, a boycott of Israel or illegal Israeli settlements. The bill exempts contracts with a value of less than one hundred thousand dollars or with companies with less than 10 employees. The version that passed out of the House removed the monetary threshold. The bill also prohibits the state investment board from adopting any investment policy that would “have the effect of requiring or inducing any person to boycott Israel.”
