Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed SJR-6 into law on February 16, 2016, which states that the activities of the BDS movement in Alabama are, “harmful to the State’s relationships with Alabama’s Jewish citizens,” and expresses unconditional support for Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. The legislation goes on to, “unequivocally denounce and reject the international Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement and any furtherance of this movement in this state.”

Governor Bentley signed the anti-discrimination bill SB81 on May 10, 2016, which prohibits a public entity in Alabama from contracting with businesses and non-profit organizations that are engaged in a discriminatory boycott.
