The Minnesota Legislators Called to Active Duty Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot in Minnesota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.According to state reports, the measure did not garner the required legislative approval as of May 17, 2010, the end of the 2010 legislative session.[1] The proposal called for authorizing the legislature to temporarily replace a member called to active duty. Specifically, the proposal would have required lawmakers who might be activated to submit a list of three possible successors. A successor would be selected by either the House or the Senate leaders. The successor would serve until the lawmaker returns but not beyond the lawmaker's elected term.[2]

The amendment was proposed by Rep. Roger Reinert.
