Forming a Journalism Cooperative in Florida

Under Fla. Stat. §§ 618-619, Florida limits the formation of cooperative corporations to businesses in which people or associations are engaged in specific agricultural and related purposes. Therefore, you cannot form a journalism cooperative corporation in Florida. However, you may be able to form a business with aspects of a cooperative under another business form, such as an LLC, a corporation, or a nonprofit corporation. You should consult with an attorney for further information regarding your options for forming a business in Florida.
