The New Jersey Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have reduced local property taxes for some privately-held lands that were permanently preserved as open space. Sen. Jennifer Beck (R-11) and Sen. Stephen Sweeney (D-3) were the primary sponsors of this measure in the New Jersey Senate, where it was known as Senate Concurrent Resolution 37.[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.

SCR 37 was introduced on January 14, 2014, and referred to the Environment and Energy Committee.[3]
