Nevada legislators amended legislation regarding the fiduciary duties of directors and to clarify and confirm that when exercising their respective powers, directors and officers of a corporation may consider all relevant facts, circumstances, contingencies or constituencies, which may include, without limitation, those itemized in NRS 78.138(4)(a): the interests of the corporation’s employees, suppliers, creditors or customers; the economy of the state or nation; the interests of the community or of society; the long-term or short-term interests of the corporation, including the possibility that these interests may be best served by the continued independence of the corporation; or the long-term or short-term interests of the corporation’s stockholders, including the possibility that these interests may be best served by the continued independence of the corporation.

The change was one of more than 60 statutory amendments made to the state’s the Business Associations title and related titles during Nevada’s 81st legislative session.
