NJ Rev Stat § 14A:2-2.2 (2013) What's This?

14A:2-2.2. "Blind" or "handicapped" as part of corporate name
No corporation organized under the laws of the State of New Jersey nor any foreign corporation authorized to do business in New Jersey shall use the words "blind," or "handicapped," or term, terms, imprint, stamp, label or symbol suggesting such impairments, as part of its name unless the approval of the Attorney General, or his designee, is attached to the certificate of incorporation or application for amendment thereof. Such approval shall indicate that the words "blind" or "handicapped," or term, terms, imprint, stamp, label or symbol suggesting such impairments, as used in the corporate name will not tend to mislead or confuse the public into believing that the corporation is organized for charitable or nonprofit purposes for the blind or handicapped. Any corporation presently organized under the laws of this State or any foreign corporation presently authorized to do business in this State that employs the words "blind," or "handicapped," or term, terms, imprint, stamp, label or symbol suggesting such impairment, in its corporate name shall seek the approval of the Attorney General, or his designee, within 90 days after the effective date of this act if it wishes to continue the use of such words, terms, imprint, stamp, label or symbol in its corporate name.

L.1977, c. 8, s. 1, eff. Feb. 3, 1977.
