 PERCENT AGRICULTURAL RAW MATERIALS GROWN, HARVESTED, OR PRODUCED IN THIS
 STATE, BY WEIGHT OR VOLUME.

 ECONOMIES  THROUGHOUT  NEW YORK, IT SHALL BE THE GOAL OF THIS STATE THAT
 TWENTY PERCENT OF ALL FOOD AND FOOD PRODUCTS PURCHASED BY PUBLIC UNIVER-
 SITIES, SHALL, BY TWO  THOUSAND  TWENTY-TWO,  BE  NEW  YORK  STATE  FOOD

 FOR THE PURCHASE OF FOOD OR FOOD PRODUCTS IS TO BE AWARDED TO THE LOWEST
 RESPONSIBLE BIDDER, AN OTHERWISE QUALIFIED BIDDER WHO WILL  FULFILL  THE
 CONTRACT  THROUGH  THE  USE OF NEW YORK STATE FOOD PRODUCTS MAY BE GIVEN
 PREFERENCE OVER OTHER BIDDERS, PROVIDED THAT THE COST  INCLUDED  IN  THE
