The New Jersey Public Employee Benefit Enhancement Funding Amendment, ACR 66 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have required legislation enhancing public employee benefits to identify a funding source to defray the cost of the enhancement. This measure was sponsored by Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon, Jr. (R-13) in the legislature, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 66. It would have amended Article IV, Section IV by adding a new paragraph to it.[1]

Path to the ballot

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 66 was introduced January 16, 2014, and referred to the State and Local Government Committee.[3]
