A New Jersey Prohibition of Healthcare Coverage Mandates Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have prohibited state or federal laws or regulations from compelling a person to obtain, provide or participate in health care coverage. At least two such legislatively-referred constitutional amendments were proposed in the 2014 legislative session, including Assembly Concurrent Resolution 14 and Senate Concurrent Resolution 59.[1][2]

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 14 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Health and Senior Services Committee.[4] SCR 59 was introduced on February 25, 2014, and referred to the Commerce Committee.[5]
