State Law: Forming a Cooperative

Please select a state below for more information about forming a journalism-oriented cooperative corporation in that state.  

Please note that not every state recognizes the "cooperative corporation" as a specific business form, and that some states which recognize this form restrict the use of this form to industries other than journalism. The state pages listed below will inform you whether the state recognizes the form, and if so, whether a journalism organization can adopt that form.

Note also that this section of the Guide is under development; new states will be added to our coverage in the future.
