A New Jersey Legislative Term Limits Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. At least two measures were proposed in the 2014 legislative session to create term limits for both chambers of the legislature: Assembly Concurrent Resolution 49 and Assembly Concurrent Resolution 52. Both measures would have created a term limit of three successive terms for senators and five successive terms for members of the assembly. New Jersey did not have legislative term limits at the time of their proposals.[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.

Both ACR 49 and 52 were introduced on January 16, 2014, and both were referred to the Judiciary Committee.[4][5]
