The New Jersey Housing Rights and Opportunities Amendment, ACR 15 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have clarified that the state is not obligated "to facilitate the availability of housing for all income levels in every municipality," and prohibited "laws requiring municipalities to provide housing opportunities through zoning and land use regulations." The measure was primarily sponsored by Assemblywoman Alison Little McHose (R-24) and Assemblyman Parker Space (R-24) in the New Jersey Legislature, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 15. It would have amended paragraph 1 of Article I and paragraph 2 of Article IV, Section VI of the New Jersey Constitution.[1]

Path to the ballot

See also: Amending the New Jersey Constitution

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 15 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and was referred to the Housing and Community Development Committee.[4]
