Recently Enacted Legislation: Amendments to the Non-Profit Revitalization Act

Governor Cuomo signed legislation intended to ensure effective implementation of the Non-Profit Revitalization Act of 2013 (NPRA)(A.10365-B/S.7913-B, Chp. 466). The amendments will address certain ambiguities in the law that complicate compliance and enforcement and which would alleviate burdens on nonprofits counterproductive to the expressed goal of the NPRA to encourage nonprofits to form in New York rather than in other states.  The legislation was supported by the Non-Profit Organizations Committee and reflected many of the reforms suggested by the Committee in collaboration with the Law Revision Commission, Lawyers Alliance of New York, New York State Bar Association and Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York in a 2015 report.
