The New Jersey Realty Transfer Fee Revenue for Shore Protection Amendment, ACR 28 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have dedicated up to $25 million annually from realty transfer fee revenues to the Shore Protection Fund. The fund was created in 1992. The measure was being sponsored by Assemblyman Sean Kean (R-30) in the New Jersey Assembly, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 28. The measure would have amended Article VIII, Section II, of the New Jersey Constitution by adding a new paragraph to it.[1]

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 28 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.[3]
