House to Review Antisemitism Bill Amid Rising Campus Tensions

The House Rules Committee will discuss the Antisemitism Awareness Act at 4 p.m. on Monday. This bill was introduced by Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY) in response to the recent attack by Hamas on Israel. The bipartisan bill is aimed at changing the definition of antisemitic acts of harassment and would have a significant impact on how such acts are viewed.

If passed, the Antisemitism Awareness Act would expand federal anti-discrimination laws to include language used during college campus protests related to the Israel-Hamas conflict. This means that certain types of language and behavior that target Jewish students could be subject to punishment under federal law.

The House is anticipated to vote on the bill later this week. This proposed legislation is part of an effort to combat antisemitism and protect Jewish students from harassment and discrimination.
