(b) Any association formed under any other statute of this state, or any statute adopted by authority, other than the authority of the state, is not a partnership under §§ 7-12-12 7-12-59, unless the association would have been a partnership in this state prior to May 6, 1957; but §§ 7-12-12 7-12-59 apply to limited partnerships except insofar as the statutes relating to partnerships are inconsistent with these provisions.
