The South Dakota Legislative Expenses and Term Limits Amendment, also known as Amendment F, was on the November 7, 2006 ballot in South Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have removed the limitation on expense reimbursements received by legislators. The measure also would have removed specific prohibitions against enacting private or special laws, instead restricting legislators with a more general prohibition. Congressional term limits would have also been removed, the procedure for introducing a bill would have been shortened and the legislature would have been authorized to exercise emergency powers in the event of a disaster.[1][2]
