Read the bill: SF 2880
On May 3, 2017, Governor Mark Dayton signed HF 400/SF 247 into law. This bill prohibits state agencies and the state legislature form contracting with vendors unless the vendor certifies that they are not discriminating against Israel or persons/entities doing business in Israel. "Discrimination" is defined to include "refusals to deal, terminating business activities, or other actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel, or persons doing business with Israel, when such actions are taken in a manner that in any way discriminates on the basis of nationality or national origin and is not based on a valid business reason."
