Section 11-94-24

Validation of incorporation of certain port authorities.

In all cases where there has heretofore been an attempt to incorporate a port authority under the provisions of this chapter, and the incorporation of such authority was approved by the Director of State Docks and a certificate of incorporation with respect to such authority has been filed in the offices of the judge of probate of the county in which such authority was sought to be incorporated, but the attempted incorporation is invalid because of some irregularity in the procedure followed, the attempted incorporation of such port authority with respect to which such certificate of incorporation has been filed shall be and hereby is validated ab initio, notwithstanding any irregularity in the procedure for the incorporation of such port authority including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (1) the failure of the State Docks Advisory Committee to take any action or to adopt any resolution with respect to such incorporation, (2) the failure of the certificate of incorporation to state that the State Docks Department had adopted a resolution granting permission to organize such authority or the date of adoption of such resolution, or (3) the failure of such judge of probate to approve such certificate of incorporation and make an order so approving it.
