2013 Amendments to the Texas Business Organizations Code

State Bar of Texas Business Law Section Newsletter

Two of the bills passed by the Texas Legislature in its 2013 Regular Session and signed by Governor Perry (Senate Bills 847 and 849) amend various provisions of the Texas Business Organizations Code (the “TBOC”). Both of the bills were sponsored by the Texas Business Law Foundation. The amendments will be effective as of September 1, 2013.

In summary, the amendments to the TBOC in Senate Bill 847:

•     Simplify a restated certificate of formation that contains a new amendment by deleting Section 3.059(d) of the TBOC and its requirement to identify by reference or description each added, altered, or deleted provision of the certificate of formation.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
