The stand-alone anti-BDS legislation we've been watching, to see whether our Congressmen join as co-sponsors? At the end of June 2016 the Senate Appropriations Committee rolled it into the $52 billion "State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Bill" for FY 2017. Congress most probably will not vote on the stand-alone bill. "AIPAC commends" the Senate Appropriations Committee for this action. Here are the original bills:
S. 2531, the "Combating BDS Act of 2016", introduced 2/10/2016
H.R. 4514, the House version, introduced 2/10/2016

Thank you to all members and supporters who helped STOP the anti-boycott ordinance proposed in New Castle County on September 29, 2015! (Ordinance 15-093). The ordinance was withdrawn by its sponsor in January 2016 and so did not face a vote at County Council. See this announcement to supporters in November 2015 after the New Castle County Pension Board voted not to pass the ordinance before sending it on to County Council.
