Page 71, after line 3, insert:

"I. The Department of General Services shall establish the Recycled Materials Advantage Program (RMAP), whereby the Department shall promulgate regulations that provide a preference in the competitive bidding process for bidders who supply materials containing recycled content. Such preference shall ensure that such bidders are selected provided that the recycled materials are competitive in cost to non-recycled content materials. The RMAP shall be phased in as follows; material and supplies shall include recycled content in the amount of  10 percent by 2025, 20 percent by 2028, and 30 percent by 2030."


(This amendment adds language creating a Recycled Materials Advantage Program directing the Department of General Services to promulgate regulations that provide a preference in the bidding process for the purchase of materials and supplies that contain at least 30 percent recycled plastic by 2030.)
