§70-16-107. Revised editions - Late adoptions.
A. In the event that a publisher whose bid has been accepted shall publish at any time before the expiration of the adoption period a new or revised edition of the adopted textbook, the State Textbook Committee may require such publisher to substitute such new or revised edition for the adopted edition at a price to be mutually agreed upon by the publisher and the State Textbook Committee, but not in excess of the lowest price at which the same textbook will be sold or offered for sale for the purpose of securing a state or local selection or adoption elsewhere in the United States during the twelve (12) months preceding the date of submitting such new or revised edition. A contract shall be made for such new or revised edition as for any other selection. Each bidder shall expressly agree to this provision as a part of the bid and the contract awarded if successful.
B. In the event that a publisher shall publish a textbook for a subject during the period for which adoptions for that subject have not expired, such publisher may submit a bid for such textbook at the time and in the manner other bids are submitted. The State Textbook Committee may adopt such book for the balance of the adoption period and thereafter local textbook committees may adopt such book.
