Ballot Law Update
The New Jersey Initiative and Referendum Amendment, ACR 67 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have created a system for indirect initiated constitutional amendments , indirect initiated state statutes and veto referendums. The measure was primarily being sponsored by Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon, Jr. (R-13), Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-11) and Assemblywoman Donna Simon (R-16) in the legislature, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 67. It would have amended Article I, paragraph 2 and Article II 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 67 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Judiciary Committee.[3]
