New York State Office of General Services - Executive Order 157
Executive Order 157 - Banning Investment in Institutions or Companies that Boycott Israel
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo issued Executive Order No. 157 directing State entities to divest all public funds supporting the Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel. The first-in-the-nation action will ensure that no State agency or authority engages in or promotes any investment activity that would further the harmful and discriminatory Palestinian-backed Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign in New York State.
