Molinaro Introduces Bipartisan Bill To Crack Down On Antisemitism On College Campuses

Washington, D.C. ā€“ U.S. Reps. Marc Molinaro (R-NY-19) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ-5) today introduced the College Antisemitism Transparency Act to crack down on antisemitic demonstrations on Cornell University, Binghamton University, and college campuses across the county. Earlier this month on Fox News, Reps. Molinaro and Gottheimer also discussed their bipartisan efforts to combat antisemitism.

Rep. Molinaro's bipartisan bill will force colleges and universities receiving federal funding to sign an annual statement acknowledging that discrimination of any form is a violation of law and results in the loss of federal funds. It will also require schools to report every antisemitic incident on campus to the Department of Education and explain what was done to resolve it. 

Rep. Molinaro said, "American taxpayers should not be subsidizing hate. Colleges and universities that allow antisemitism and hostility towards Jewish students will be held accountable for their discriminatory actions."

Rep. Gottheimer said, ā€œIā€™m proud to help lead the bipartisan College Antisemitism Transparency Act with my friend and colleague, Congressman Molinaro. Our college campuses are facing a tidal wave of antisemitic hate, and transparency is key to understanding the scope of the problem. This commonsense legislation will make it easier to monitor incidents of antisemitism and hold harassers accountable.ā€
