The Kentucky Legislative Session Referendum, also known as Amendment 2, was on the November 6, 1973 ballot in Kentucky as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have required the Kentucky General Assembly to meet annually for not longer than 45 legislative days, which need not be consecutive. The session could not be longer than four months or six months if approved by two-thirds of the members of both houses. It also would have required legislators to have resided in their districts for two years rather than one year prior to election.[1]
