The New Jersey Fuel Tax Revenue to Transportation Trust Fund Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have dedicated all revenue derived from the motor fuels taxes to the Transportation Trust Fund. This would have amended Article VIII, Section II, paragraph 4 of the New Jersey Constitution. Identical versions of the measure were submitted in both the Assembly and the Senate. Assemblyman Joseph Lagana (D-38) was sponsoring Assembly Concurrent Resolution 151, and Sen. Raymond Lesniak (D-20) was sponsoring Senate Concurrent Resolution 106.[1][2]

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. SCR 106 was introduced on April 28, 2014, and referred to the Transportation Committee.[4] ACR 151 was introduced on May 15, 2014, and referred to the Transportation and Independent Authorities Committee.[5]
