There is no specific law with respect to this issue.

So what governs is the contract between the manufacturer and the retailer.

If the contract requires the retailer to sell at the MSRP then the retailer must. If the contract is silent then the retailer can sell at any price they choose.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.
