   § 37-2-77  International Trade Agreements

– Procurement rules – General Assembly approval. –

(a) As used in this section, "International Trade Agreement" means a trade

agreement between the federal government and a foreign country to which the

state, at the request of the federal government, is a party. International

Trade Agreement does not include a trade agreement between the state and a

foreign country to which the federal government is not a party.



   (b) Except as provided in subsection (c) of this section,

state officials, including the governor, may not:



   (1) Commit the state to the government procurement rules of

an "International Trade Agreement"; or



   (2) Give consent to the federal government to commit the

state to the government procurement rules of an International Trade Agreement.



   (c) The governor may commit the state or give consent to the

federal government to commit the state to the government procurement rules of

an International Trade Agreement only if the general assembly enacts

legislation that explicitly authorizes the governor to commit the state or give

consent to the federal government to commit the state to the government

procurement rules of a specific International Trade Agreement.



   (d) Any consent that a state official, including the

governor, has given for the state to be committed by the government procurement

rules of any International Trade Agreement on or before the effective date of

this section [June 23, 2006] is declared invalid and the state is not

committed by the government procurement rules of any International Trade

Agreement for which a state official, including the governor, has given consent

for the state to be committed to on or before the effective date of this

section [June 23, 2006].
