“The Act amends anti -boycott provisions of the federal Export Administration Act (EAA), enacted in 1979 . Those provisions prohibit specific actions taken to comply with or support a boycott of Israel “fostered or imposed” by a foreign country.

Violations are punishable by exorbitant fines and up to 20 years in prison.”
