A New Jersey Full-Time Legislators Amendment, ACR 95 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have required state legislators to serve full-time. It would have also created a temporary commission to recommend the compensation for full-time legislators. Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-15) was the primary sponsor of this measure in the New Jersey Assembly, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 95. It would have amended Article IV, Section II and Article XI of the New Jersey Constitution.[1]

In New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments have two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature can either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions.

ACR 95 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee.[3]
