Bipartisan PA Legislators to Ban BDS from State Colleges and Universities

The Center Square reported that Pennsylvania Sens. Sens. Steve Santarsiero (D-Doylestown) and Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-Jacobus) will introduce legislation that would “uphold Pennsylvania’s steadfast support for Israel” and ban state treasury and pension funds from being used to divest from Israel and companies that operate inside the country.

Santarsiero said Israel is “the only true democracy in a volatile region of the world.”

“To that end, we must act to prevent our commonwealth, including our colleges and universities, from taking the wholly unwarranted action of divesting from Israel,” Santarsiero and Phillips-Hill said in a statement.

Good for them. One has to wonder whether John Fetterman's adamant opposition to the anti-Semites on college campuses has inspired the state legislature to take action.
