2013 House Bill 4246: Give “biobased” product state purchasing preference
  1. Introduced by Rep. Paul Muxlow (R) on February 12, 2013, to require the state to give preference in purchasing and procurement to “biobased” products. Contracts would have to be given to providers of equivalent “biobased” products, rather than to the lowest bidder, if the price was not more than 5 percent higher.
    • Referred to the House Oversight Committee on February 12, 2013.
