Divestment from firms boycotting Israel
The state is pulling tens of millions of dollars in retirement investments out of companies that are seeking to inflict economic harm on Israel.
The law targets businesses engaged in the boycott, divestment and sanctions, or BDS, campaign. BDS is an international movement aimed at ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories, in part by penalizing the nation’s economy.
The law will require the state to divest an estimated $50 million in retirement money, a small fraction of the state's $3.1 billion retirement portfolio.
So Indiana is trying to inflict economic harm on companies who are trying to inflict economic harm on Israel. Indiana is fighting for a country that does stuff like this.

Lovely state you have there Mr Pence.
