For the third straight year, activists in Maryland defeated anti-BDS legislation. Congratulations to the Freedom to Boycott in Marlyand coalition for this victory!

In 2017, anti-BDS legislation was introduced and defeated in Maryland. SB 739 and HB 949 would create a blacklist of individuals, organizations, and companies that participate in boycotts of Israel and "territories controlled by Israel," and prohibit the state from investing in blacklisted entities.  These bills also prohibit those who participate in boycotts of Israel and "territories controlled by Israel" from contracting with the state.
