Nevada has become the latest state to introduce legislation to counter the anti-Israel BDS movement, the Jewish News Service reported.
Nevada Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchinson and pro-Israel activists introduced Senate Bill 26, which is similar to anti-BDS legislation passed in a dozen other states in recent years.
Israeli-American Coalition for Action Chairman Shawn Evenhaim said of the legislation: “We have a unique opportunity in the coming legislative session to send a powerful message that the hateful and discriminatory environment fostered by BDS has no place in Nevada.”
He added: “The IAC for Action is grateful to Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison and the state legislators of Nevada for their courageous leadership on this issue.”
