Benefit Corp Legislation Passes Illinois, Dies in Colorado

There are now eight states with Benefit Corporation laws.

Illinois is likely to be the eighth state to enact a benefit corporation law. The state legislature passed the bill and now awaits the Governor's signature.  The b-corp bill in Colorado passed the Assembly, but succumbed to intense partisanship in the Senate.  ASBC continues to advocate for benefit corporations in PA, NC, SC, LA, and TX.  To learn more, visit the Benefit Corporations campaign page.
