In 2017, Washington State Senator Michael Baumgartner stated intentions to introduce a bill that would prohibit public universities and private universities that receive State Need Grant funding from participating in boycott activities. The bill was never introduced.
In an interview, Sen. Baumgartner said:
If students want to protest on campus and do what students do, that’s just fine. But we’ll settle the question for them, the adults in legislature.
