Section 21-2-3

Board to fix price of products offered for sale, etc.; evasion of article.

The Director of Finance, the Attorney General, and the president of the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind are hereby constituted a board to fix a fair market price for all articles offered for sale under authority of this chapter, to determine whether or not articles produced by blind, visually handicapped, deaf, or other severely handicapped persons meet the reasonable requirements of state departments, agencies, and institutions and to authorize state departments, agencies, and institutions to purchase articles elsewhere when requisitions cannot be complied with through the Department of Adult Blind and Deaf. No department, institution, or agency shall be allowed to evade the intent and meaning of this chapter by slight variations from standards adopted by the Department of Adult Blind and Deaf of the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind when the articles produced or manufactured by it, in accordance with its standards, are reasonably adapted to the actual needs of such departments, institutions, agencies, or political subdivisions.
