A New Jersey Restrict Non-blighted Property Condemnation Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have restricted the use of condemnation power on non-blighted property for private economic development purposes. Assemblyman Brian Rumpf (R-9) and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove (R-9) were the primary sponsors of one version of this measure in the New Jersey Assembly, which was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 96.[1] Sen. Christopher Connors (R-9) sponsored a similar bill in the Senate, which was known as Senate Concurrent Resolution 16.[2] Both measure would have amended Article VIII, Section III of the New Jersey Constitution.[1][2]
