Victory! HB 501 failed to pass. Congratulations to members of Helena Service for Peace and Justice, the Montana Coalition for Palestine, and others for organizing to defeat this bill.

HB 501 proposed creating a state blacklist of for-profit entities that boycott Israel, and requiring the state to divest from blacklisted entities. It also proposed prohibiting public entities from contracting with for-profit entities unless those entities certify that they do not boycott Israel.
