BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraphs a, d, f and g of subdivision 4 of section 165 of
the state finance law, as amended by chapter 137 of the  laws  of  2008,
are amended to read as follows:

contracts for the purchase of food products on behalf of facilities  and
institutions  of the state, solicitation specifications of the office of
general services and any other  agency,  department,  office,  board  or
commission  may  require provisions that mandate that all or some of the
required food products are grown, produced  or  harvested  in  New  York
state, or that any processing of such food products take place in facil-
ities located within New York state.
  (I)  ALL  SUCH  SOLICITATIONS  FOR THE PURCHASE OF FOOD PRODUCTS SHALL

  d.  The commissioner, and the commissioner of agriculture and markets,
[may] SHALL issue [such] regulations [as they deem necessary and proper]
