Public procurement preference margin

On June 17, 2011 the governor of Texas signed into law a measure (House Bill 1869) providing for local price preferences in public procurement. The bill amended Section 271.905 of the Local Government Code to allow all municipalities the option of implementing a 3% local bidding preference on competitively bid contracts for goods.
Similarly, on that same day he signed into law another measure (House Bill 628) that amended Section 271.9051(b) of the Local Government Code to allow a municipality to consider a 5% local bidding preference on certain competitively bid contracts, including construction services (less than $100,000) and other goods and general services (less than $500,000).
