No small business preference shall be allowed if allowing the small business preference would result in a computed bid of the preference recipient which would exceed the amount of funds appropriated by the Legislature for the construction project, plus any augmentation that may be made by the State Public Works Board pursuant to authority granted in the annual Budget Act.
The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted by its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
