The New Jersey Sports Betting Funds for Developmental Disabilities Residence Amendment, ACR 61 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have provided for the revenues derived from wagering on sports or athletic events to be used first to fund community residential placements for persons with developmental disabilities. This measure was primarily sponsored by Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-37) and Assemblyman Thomas Giblin (D-34) in the legislature, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 61. It would have amended Article IV, Section VII, paragraph 2 of the New Jersey Constitution.[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 61 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and was referred to the Human Services Committee.[3]
