Gov. John Hickenlooper says he supports House Bill 1284, a proposal with bi-partisan sponsorship in both legislative chambers. The bill would require the state's public employee pension fund, PERA, to oppose the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement which seeks to punish Israel for its treatment of Palestinians. The BDS movement has begun drawing questions even from Palestinians as to its wisdom.
