The Eighty-first General Assembly enacted a considerable number of significant statutes affecting business organizations or their activities. One of the new statutes made important changes in the Securities Law of 1955. Several of the statutes were designed, or at least professed to be designed, to encourage the commercial and industrial development of Tennessee. On the other hand, Tennessee courts handed down during the survey period only two or three opinions touching on business associations questions, and those questions were of but little importance. In general, this article discusses the statutes first, then the judicial decisions.
