State Sen. Arthur Orr, R-Decatur, is working on a piece of legislation that will loosen government agencies' purchasing rules. He says it would save the state millions of dollars.

Currently, state agencies are required to purchase personal property such as office supplies and furniture from a statewide contract, referred to as a bid list, established by the Department of Finance. Orr's proposal would allow agencies to purchase goods from retailers not on that bid list if the purchase price is at least 10 percent less than the statewide contract price.
