Missouri joins 31 other states in passing anti-BDS legislation

Missouri became the 32nd state to pass anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) legislation on Monday when Governor Mike Parson signed into law a bill that prohibits it from contracting with companies that boycott Israel.

Under the Anti-Discrimination Against Israel Act, Missouri and its political subdivisions are prohibited from signing a contract with a company unless it includes 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, person or entity doing business with or in Israel.

The legislation does not apply to contracts of less than $100,000, nor does it apply to companies with fewer than 10 employees.
