non-profit companies and the acts relating to co-operative companies. Under this code any class of business or non-profit company can incorporate excepting the corporations mentioned in Sec. 8, Chapter 1, Part 1, such as banks, insurance companies, railroads, certain utilities, cemeteries, etc. Churches, lodges and all classes of societies, etc., can if they wish, incorporate under the code, but the churches and lodges will continue under their present laws which are not repealed.

Some of the features of this code are the non-profit shares for business corporations, voluntary dissolution, welfare stock for employes, based upon continued and faithful service; and other features liberalizing the attitude of the State towards corporations, and which will enable Michigan corporations to compete with foreign corporations; and instead of Michigan business being forced to go to Delaware or New Jersey to incorporate they can incorporate with the same privileges at home. "Among these liberal provisions are: 1. Removal of limit of capital; 2. Non-par Stock; 3. Removal of 50 per cent stock subscriptions; 4. Simpler method of filing articles."

“Under this code, articles, etc., will be filed instead of being copied and recorded in Secretary of State's office which will save labor and expense for the State.

The saving clause in the code reserves to all existing corporations their rights and privileges."
