Arkansas's 2017 anti-boycott law states that a public entity may not enter into a contract with a company unless the contract includes a written certification that the company is not currently engaged in a boycott of Israel and will not engage in a boycott of Israel for the duration of the contract. The clause does not apply if either: the company offers to provide the services for at least 20% less than each other qualified company or if the contract has a total potential value of less than $1,000. The law also creates a blacklist of companies engaged in a boycott of Israel, making blacklisted companies subject to divestment by the State Treasurer and the State's retirement systems.
