Current Bill Summary

SB 463 - Section 355.331 was amended by the General Assembly in SB 768 (1996) to increase the term of office for directors of nonprofit corporations from five to six years. The Missouri Supreme Court then found that bill to be in violation of the clear title requirement in the Constitution. Thus, the amendment to Section 355.331 was invalidated and the law went back to a term of five years for a director.

However, once SB 768 passed, the Revisor of Statutes amended the section to show the term limit of directors to be six years in the printed version of the Revised Statutes. This act makes a substantive change in the law by increasing the term of office for a director from five to six years.
