Committee Reports

Proposed Amendments to the Non-Profit Revitalization Act of 2013


The Non-Profit Organizations Committee joined in issuing a report proposing amendments to the Non-Profit Revitalization Act (NPRA).  The NPRA was enacted in 2013 and supported by the Committee because it remedied many of the weaknesses in New York’s archaic and needlessly burdensome nonprofit laws.  The report, jointly issued by the Committee, Law Revision Commission, Lawyers Alliance of New York, New York State Bar Association and Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, suggests revisions to the NPRA that would 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.


A number of the proposed amendments were included in A.10365-B (AM Brennan) / S.7913-B (Sen. Ranzenhofer)(NYS 2016)


Signed by the Governor, Chp. 466 – November 28, 2016
