“In order to ensure that taxpayer money does not directly or indirectly support international acts of terrorism, the State of Florida and its cities, counties and other political subdivisions shall not contract with or invest in any individuals, partnerships, corporations or other legal entities invested in or doing business with countries designated by the US State Department, as of January 1, 2015, as state sponsors of terrorism. 

Existing contracts and/or investments must not be renewed, and must be cancelled or divested at the earliest prudent opportunity. Under no circumstance shall such contracts and/or investments be in force past December 31, 2018.” 

Prohibited countries will be added to the list when designated by the US State Department as a state sponsor of terrorism. Countries can be removed from the prohibition list only upon their reclassification by the US State Department, and an affirmative majority vote of the State House and State Senate and the signature of the Governor, or by the overriding of the Governor’s veto by the State House and State Senate by a 2/3rds vote.
