Taxpayer money wasted on New York State contracts?

Should contractors who bid on New York State contracts be forced to seek out and utilize minority or women owned companies to supply services or goods, by-passing other companies who may offer the same at a lower price but because of established goals set by the Minority & Women Business Department in Albany for each contract they are overlooked? The state and its taxpayers are being charged more money to satisfy these ridiculous goals and as a taxpayer don’t we all want the biggest bang for our buck?
