The New Jersey Right to Privacy from Government Intrusion Amendment, ACR 24 may appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure, if approved, would guarantee the "right of the people to privacy from government intrusion shall not be infringed upon except by due process." This measure is primarily being sponsored by Assemblywoman Amy Handlin (R-13), Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-11) and Assemblyman Ronald Dancer (R-12) in the New Jersey Assembly, where it is known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 24.[1]

Text of measure


The following statement providing a summary of ACR 24 was included in the measure:[1]

Currently, the Constitution recognizes that all persons are protected against unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. This concurrent resolution proposes an amendment to the New Jersey Constitution that would clarify that people have a right to privacy from government intrusion, unless the government follows due process of law.[2]
