A bill titled Divestment from Companies That Boycott Israel requires North Carolina state institutions to cease all contracts with companies that boycott Israeli companies and/or products made in Israel. The bill passed the North Carolina House of Representatives 96-19 following a 45-3 vote in the states senate. Governor Roy Cooper is expected to sign the legislation.
