The Governor has already signed HB 793 and it goes into effect right away. This is an amendment to the law that barred school districts and other governmental entities from contracting with a business unless the business promises not to boycott Israel.
The law, as amended, now only applies to contracts in excess of $100,000 with companies that have at least 10 full time employees.
That change does not completely remove the statute from constitutional scrutiny. A federal judge has blocked enforcement of the law, and that injunction remains in effect until further notice. We told you about that in the Daily Dawg on May 8th. So stay tuned for more!
