A New Jersey Homestead Rebate Amounts for Veterans Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have permitted some veterans and their spouses to receive homestead rebate amounts similar to the amounts allowed for senior and disabled residents. Identical measures were introduced in the Assembly and Senate by Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-6), Assemblyman Vincent Prieto (D-32) and Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-1), where they were known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 87 and Senate Concurrent Resolution 18. The measures would have amended Article VIII, Section I of the New Jersey Constitution.[1][2]

Path to the ballot

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.

The Senate and Assembly versions were introduced two days apart: January 14 and 16, 2014, respectively. SCR 18 was referred to the Community and Urban Affairs Committee and ACR 87 to the Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee.[5][6]
