Rhode Island Foreign Non-Profits


Effective June 19, 2017

Rhode Island House Bill 5647 and Senate Bill 618, amend the nonprofit corporation law by substituting the supporting document to be filed upon foreign qualification from a copy of the corporation’s charter to a status certificate (e.g. Certificate of Existence).

It is now required that non-profits obtain and submit a Certificate of Existence for all foreign qualifications.

WA State Potential Shutdown


The Washington State Legislature has not yet approved state operating and capital budgets for the 2017–19 biennium, which begins July 1. If the Legislature does not approve budgets by June 30, several state agencies will go through full or partial operations shutdowns. In the event of a shutdown, the DOL will suspend programs at the department for Uniform Commercial Code until the 2017-19 budgets are approved.
