SB 616 - Subsection 4 of Section 355.176, RSMo, which
provides where suits against non-profit corporations may be
commenced, was repealed by the General Assembly in SB 768 (1996).
The Missouri Supreme Court then found that bill to be in
violation of the clear title requirement in the Constitution.
Thus, the venue provisions for suits against non-profit
corporations were never repealed and are still part of our laws.
However, once SB 768 passed, the Revisor of Statutes removed that
subsection from the printed version of the Revised Statutes.
The Revisor is not authorized to re-publish a subsection of law
that has been repealed by the legislature even if the Supreme
Court has overturned that repeal. This act would serve to have
the section re-published in the RSMo, but will not cause any
substantive change to the current law.
