South Carolina Amendment 2b, Adjournment of the General Assembly Act (2006)
Before Amendment 2b was approved, the South Carolina Constitution included a requirement that prohibited either house of the South Carolina State Legislature from adjourning for more than three days without the consent of the other house. Amendment 2b deleted that requirement.
- Note: This amendment was identified by election officials as Amendment 2b and as Amendment #3.

The question asked on the ballot was:
- "Shall Article III of the Constitution of this State be amended by deleting Section 21 which provides that neither house of the General Assembly shall, without the consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other place than that in which it shall be at the time."
As provided for in South Carolina law, election officials include a neutral explanation on the ballot of each ballot question. The explanation provided alongside the question for proposed Amendment 1 in 2006 said:
- "This amendment deletes a requirement that prohibits either house from adjourning for more than three days without the consent of the other house. This deletion is necessary to permit the meeting and receding provisions outlined in paragraph one."
