On Monday, Ohio Governor and former Republican presidential candidate John Kasich signed an anti-Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) bill into law.
The anti-BDS bill prohibits Ohio state agencies from contracting “with a company that is boycotting Israel or disinvesting from Israel.”
LDB Senior Staff Attorney Jennie Gross testified in front of the Ohio Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee in support of the bill on December 6, and LDB President and General Counsel Kenneth L. Marcus testified in support of the bill in front of the Ohio Assembly earlier this year.
Kasich is the seventeenth governor to sign an anti-BDS bill into law.
