The Minnesota Special Legislative Session 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][2]

The measure called for giving legislators the power to declare a special legislative session without the governor's permission. If measure had been approved by voters, legislators would have the power to call a special session for up to seven days if the majority party's leadership in both houses and the rules committee in each house approves.[3]

The measure was sponsored by Sen. Richard Cohen.
