  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 103 of the general municipal  law,
as amended by section 1 of part FF of chapter 56 of the laws of 2010, is
amended to read as follows:

or  by  a  local  law adopted prior to September first, nineteen hundred
fifty-three, all contracts for public work involving an  expenditure  of
more  than  thirty-five  thousand  dollars  and  all  purchase contracts
involving an expenditure of more than twenty thousand dollars, shall  be
awarded  by  the  appropriate  officer,  board  or agency of a political
subdivision or of any district therein including but not  limited  to  a
soil  conservation district, to the lowest responsible bidder furnishing
the required security after advertisement for sealed bids in the  manner

for the purpose of determining the low bid. In cases where two  or  more
responsible  bidders  furnishing  the required security submit identical
bids as to price, such officer, board or agency may award  the  contract
to any of such bidders. Such officer, board or agency may, in his or her
or  its  discretion, reject all bids and readvertise for new bids in the
manner provided by this section. In determining whether a purchase is an
expenditure within the discretionary threshold  amounts  established  by
