Florida's 2018 law expands the State's 2016 anti-boycott law. The prior law prohibited public entities from contracting with any company or non-profit that boycotts Israel for contracts exceeding $1 million. HB 545 removed the $1 million threshold. The bill also requires the state to create a blacklist of companies, including sole proprietorships, that boycott Israel and prohibits state pension funds from investing in blacklisted companies.
