A New Jersey Prohibition of Revenue Diversion Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. At least three measures were proposed in 2014 legislative session to prohibit diversion of dedicated state revenue and suspend dedicated revenue collections if not appropriated for dedicated purpose during fiscal year: identical measures Assembly Concurrent Resolution 135 and Senate Concurrent Resolution 63, as well as Senate Concurrent Resolution 93.[1][2][3]

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. SCR 63 was introduced on February 27, 2014, and referred to State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee.[4] SCR 93 was introduced on March 17, 2014, and referred to Budget and Appropriations Committee.[5] ACR 135 was introduced on March 24, 2014, and referred to Appropriations Committee.[6]
