The Ohio House of Representatives passed House Concurrent Resolution 10 (HCR 10), “to condemn the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement and increasing incidents of anti-Semitism.” The resolution passed with only two nay votes. HCR 10 gives notice that the Ohio General Assembly is gravely concerned with increasing acts of anti-Semitism, including anti-Israel activity, and the shutting down of free speech on university campuses in Ohio. The resolution will now move on to the Ohio Senate for concurrence.
Agudath Israel supported this effort and thanks the sponsors, Rep. Andy Thompson and Rep. Dave Greenspan, as well as the co-sponsors.
