Cooperative Statutes by State

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's State Cooperative Statute Website, a comprehensive, state-by-state review of co-op law, is expected to address the challenge of inconsistent legislative framework for cooperative development in the US. Currently, co-op statutes differ greatly from state to state. Nationwide, both incorporation legislation and enabling legislation are needed to create a legal environment conducive to cooperative growth.

NCBA CLUSA has long advocated for a 50-state approach to cooperative law. The upcoming launch of the State Cooperative Statute website will help identify core pieces of good co-op statutes that could be adopted by other states, resulting in clearer and more consistent statutes nationwide.

Below, please find research on existing state cooperative statutes. To receive an Excel spreadsheet comparing the provisions of statutes, email Meegan Moriarty at meegan.moriarty@wdc.usda.gov.
