1) No main motion is in order that conflicts with the corporate charter, constitution, or bylaws (although a main motion to amend them may be in order; see 35, 57); and to the extent that procedural rules applicable to the organization or assembly are prescribed by federal, state, or local law, no main motion is in order that conflicts with such rules.

RONR 11th edition p. 111.

I believe that I read in Roberts Rules that state law or statues superseeds Roberts Rules of Order.  Where can I find that. Is in the 11th edition newly revised book?

The 11th edition had a slight change in wording to clarify that this applies to procedural rules found in laws, not to every law on every subject.
