Public procurement preference margin

A law approved by the state legislature of Massachusetts on July 30, 2010 establishes a 'preference for those products of agriculture grown or produced using locally-grown products' for purchases by 'the state purchasing agent responsible for procuring the products on behalf of a state agency, authority or trustees or officers of a state college or university designated by such trustees.'
 
It further provides that the preference will apply 'unless the price of the goods exceeds, by more than 10 per cent, the price of products of agriculture grown or produced using products grown outside of the commonwealth.'
