A bill to suspend state financial support to universities and colleges that help fund organisations boycotting Israel was overwhelmingly adopted by the New York State Senate last week.Most universities like those should have funding and donations cut for a lot of other shady dealings too.
The bill, introduced by Democratic Senator Jeffrey Klein, passed on a 56-4 vote.
