This bill promotes Anti-Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) of American Allies, which includes Israel.
This bill is common-sense legislation. This bill seeks to stop purchasing and commerce restrictions aimed at our allies, such as Israel and any member of NATO. This bill will outlaw the boycotting of any allied nation of the United States.
It will outlaw any persons and corporations from participating in or encouraging others in any activity resulting in the abstaining from commercial, social or political relations of the affected ally. This would also apply to U.S. companies based in allied nations or in territories controlled by allied nations with intent to penalize that nation or product.
