The Ohio Small Legislature Amendment, also known as Proposed Amendment 5, was on the November 4, 1913 ballot in Ohio as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. This amendment sought to modify Sections 1 to 5 of Article XI of the Ohio Constitution to reduce the size of the Ohio General Assembly. Specifically, it would have reduce the Senate from 33 members to 22 and the House of Representatives from 123 members to 50.[1][2][3]

The measure was the first initiated constitutional amendment to be placed on the Ohio statewide ballot.
