Poland’s conservative Law and Justice party authored a bill that calls for up to three years in prison for any intentional attempt to attribute the crimes of Nazi Germany to the Polish state or people.

The legislation has sparked a diplomatic dispute with Israel, and the US had argued that it could hurt freedom of speech as well as strategic relationships. US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert voiced her government’s concerns as the Polish Senate was preparing to approve the bill Wednesday; the bill later passed by 57 votes to 23.

Poland’s conservative ruling Law and Justice party authored the bill, which calls for up to three years in prison for any intentional attempt to falsely attribute the crimes of Nazi Germany to the Polish state or people, the AP reports.
