The New Jersey Public Education Funding Per Pupil Amendment, ACR 42 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have required certain state funding for public education to be distributed on a per pupil basis. This would have amended Article VIII, Section IV, paragraph 1 of the New Jersey Constitution. The measure was primarily sponsored by Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi (R-39) and cosponsored by Assemblyman John DiMaio (R-23) in the New Jersey Legislature, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 42.[1]

Path to the ballot

See also: Amending the New Jersey Constitution

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 42 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Education Committee.[3]
