ST. PAUL, Minnesota: Legislators in Minnesota ended session on May 17, 2010[1] without passing an initiative amendment. House File 365 would have allowed Minnesotans to initiative amendments to the Minnesota Constitution[2].

The proposed amendment was reported favorably by the House Finance Committee on February 22, 2010[2]. However, House File 365 was never scheduled for a vote in either house of the Legislature, stopping a potential ballot question on the November 2nd ballot[2]. Minnesota law requires any constitutional amendment to pass either house of the legislature on a simple majority.
