This chart attempts to summarize and organize the major provisions of the various state benefit corporation statutes to help the reader compare these statutes. The chart is updated as of the date listed in the document footer, and the substance of the state statutes is included only after the statutes become effective.

The information contained in this chart was gathered as background research for the author's first article on benefit corporations: J. Haskell Murray, Choose Your Own Master: Social Enterprise, Certifications, and Benefit Corporation Statutes, 2 Am. U. Bus. L. Rev. 1 (2012).
