The New Jersey Fiscal Impacts and Revenues Amendment, ACR 70 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have required bills with a fiscal impact on the state to identify offsetting revenues or reductions in appropriations prior to their final consideration by the legislature. The measure was primarily being sponsored by Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon, Jr. (R-13) and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-11) in the Assembly, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 70. It would have amended Article IV, Section IV, paragraph 6 of the New Jersey Constitution.[1]

At the time in New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments had two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature could either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions. This measure did not receive the necessary supermajority required for a 2014 ballot placement. ACR 70 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Appropriations Committee.[2]
