Israel Advocacy

From the Israel Advocacy Committee

After passing both houses of the Texas legislature with overwhelming majorities, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill banning state entities from dealing with businesses that boycott Israel or its settlements.

Abbott signed the bill on Tuesday, which was Israel Independence Day, at the Jewish Community Center of Austin.

Texas becomes the 20th state with laws or executive orders banning state business with companies that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, or BDS, against Israel.
