A legislatively referred constitutional amendment is a constitutional amendment that appears on a state's ballot as a ballot measure because the state legislature in that state voted to put it before the voters.

A legislatively referred constitutional amendment is a limited form of direct democracy with comparison to the initiated constitutional amendment. With the initiated constitutional amendment, voters are in charge of the process from beginning to end, whereas with the legislatively referred amendment, they can only approve or reject amendments which their legislature votes to place before them.
