The printing for the state shall be divided into four classes and, except as otherwise provided in this section, each class shall be let in separate contracts as follows:
(A) First Class. Bills for the two houses of the general assembly, resolutions and other matters ordered by either of them to be printed in bill form, general and local laws, joint resolutions;
(B) Second Class. The journals and bulletins of the senate and house of representatives, and reports, communications, and other documents which form part of the journals;
(C) Third class. Reports, communications, and other documents ordered by the general assembly, or either house thereof, or by the executive department or elective state officers to be printed in pamphlet form or required to be bound, not including the laws, joint resolutions, and journals of the senate and house of representatives;
(D) Fourth class. Blanks, circulars, and other work for the use of the executive departments, and elective state officers, not including those to be printed in pamphlet form or required to be bound.
The printing for the third and fourth classes may be let in one or more contracts, as the director of administrative services requires.
The director of administrative services may let a contract for printing of the first or second class, or for printing of the third class insofar as it involves reports, communications, or other documents ordered by the general assembly or either house thereof, only if, and then only to the extent that, either (1) the director and the clerk of the senate or the clerk of the house of representatives have agreed upon terms for the clerk's participation in the public printing services provided by the department of administrative services or (2) the clerk of the senate or clerk of the house of representatives has requested the director of administrative services to let a contract for printing.
