Chapter No. 290, Public Acts of 1985, entitled "AN ACT relative to meetings of the board of directors of certain nonprofit corporations and to amend Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 8, Chapter 44, Part l" (the Sunshine Law) was codified in Section 8-44-102, Tennessee Code Annotated, in such manner as to reflect a broader application than apparently was intended.
In 1986, when the General Assembly approved the codification of the 1985 Acts by Chapter No. 523, it changed the way Chapter No. 290 had been codified and reflected in the 1985 Supplement.
