Are corporate bylaws filed with the Secretary of State?

Welcome back! This question has been asked again recently. For the state of California:

Corporate bylaws are not filed with the Secretary of State. Bylaws are kept at the corporation's principal executive office (if located in this state) or the corporation's principal business office in this state. The bylaws shall be open to inspection by the shareholders at all reasonable times during office hours. If the principal executive office of the corporation is outside this state and the corporation has no principal business office in this state, it shall, upon the written request of any shareholder, furnish to such shareholder a copy of the bylaws as amended to date.

The source of this information is California Business Portal, Secretary of State Information site.
