A Court Authority Amendment, known in the legislature as Senate Joint Resolution 2, did not make the 2014 ballot in the state of Indiana as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have prohibited courts from issuing certain mandates, specifically, any requiring the state or a political subdivision of the state to expend money for the operation of any court of the state. SJR 2 ultimately died in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
