Section 3901.27 | Adoption of emergency bylaws.


The board of directors of any domestic insurance company may at any time adopt emergency bylaws, subject to repeal or change by action of those having power to adopt regular bylaws for the company, which shall be operative during an emergency, and which may, notwithstanding any different provisions of the regular bylaws, or of the applicable statutes, or of the company's charter, make any provision reasonably necessary for the operation of the company during the period of such emergency. An emergency shall exist when the president of the United States or the congress of the United States proclaims a national emergency because of an attack on the United States by nuclear or atomic weapons, or similar disaster, or when the governor of this state proclaims an emergency for corporations as described in division (U) of section 1701.01 of the Revised Code.
