THE  STATE,  OR  ANY  DEPARTMENT,  AGENCY  OR  OFFICIAL THEREOF SHALL BE
PROHIBITED FROM MAKING ANY POLITICAL  EXPENDITURE,  EITHER  DIRECTLY  OR
INDIRECTLY,  IN  SUPPORT  OF ANY ASSOCIATION ORGANIZED OR MAINTAINED FOR
POLITICAL PURPOSES, OR FOR OR IN AID  OF  ANY  CANDIDATE  FOR  POLITICAL
OFFICE  OR  FOR  THE  NOMINATION  FOR  SUCH OFFICE, OR FOR ANY POLITICAL
PURPOSE WHATSOEVER, OR FOR THE REIMBURSEMENT OR INDEMNIFICATION  OF  ANY
PERSON FOR MONEYS OR PROPERTY SO USED. THE PROHIBITION SET FORTH IN THIS
SECTION  SHALL  BE  EFFECTIVE  FOR THE PERIOD BEGINNING ON THE DATE SUCH
CONTRACT IS AWARDED OR RENEWED TO SUCH BUSINESS ENTITY  UNTIL  ONE  YEAR
FOLLOWING  THE DATE SUCH CONTRACT IS COMPLETED, CANCELLED OR TERMINATED.
UPON ANY VIOLATION OF THIS SECTION BY SUCH BUSINESS ENTITY, SUCH AWARDED
OR RENEWED CONTRACT MAY BE CANCELLED OR TERMINATED BY THE STATE, OR  ANY
SUCH  DEPARTMENT,  AGENCY  OR OFFICIAL THEREOF WITHOUT THE OCCURRENCE OF
ANY PENALTY OR DAMAGES, PROVIDED THAT ANY MONIES OWING BY THE STATE  FOR
GOODS  DELIVERED  OR WORK DONE PRIOR TO SUCH CANCELLATION OR TERMINATION
