Roskam Praises IL GA

A press release from Congressman Peter Roskam:

Fighting for Israel

Illinois did something historic this month when it stood up for our friends and allies in Israel by passing S.B. 1761.
The bill, which Governor Rauner is expected to sign soon, will prohibit the state pension fund from investing in companies that partake in the insidious Boycott, Divestment, Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel.

You might not have heard a lot about BDS until now, but what it amounts to is economic warfare in an effort to isolate Israel and I’m not standing for it.

In Washington, I’ve been proud to work with colleagues from both parties and in both chambers of Congress to champion similar legislation that will reaffirm our commitment to our Israeli allies.

Check out this video to learn more about what I’m doing, and how it’s going to make a difference:

This week, The Wall Street Journal featured an editorial I wrote about why this is so important. I hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about this bipartisan effort and why America needs to lead on this issue.

  1. Well, it warms your heart to know that our state reps have their priorities right.

  2. I wish every politician would take a pledge to do right by the American people and the USA first rather than other countries.
