US Lawmakers Approve Measure to Penalize Boycotters of Israel
The US House of Representatives on Friday approved a measure that could result in punitive measures against European companies that boycott Israel.
The measure, which was already approved by the U.S. Senate last month, is part of the large bill called the Trade Act of 2015 that is set to arrive at President Barack Obama’s desk in the near future. Under the bill’s Trade Promotion Authority, the president would be granted wide leeway to reach a trade deal with the European Union. Congress would get the chance to vote on the deal, but not on its various provisions.
