The Missouri Reduce Legislative Sessions Amendment did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

The proposed measure would have shortened Missouri's annual legislative session by ending in March instead of mid-May, beginning in 2015. According to a financial estimate for the proposal, the state legislature would have saved more than $400,000 annually. Although, the proposal may have saved the state funds Sen. John Lamping, sponsor of the proposal, said that the shorter sessions may have encouraged lawmakers to be more efficient when they were meeting.[1]
