The New Jersey Tax Exemption for Disabled Use and Access of Homes Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have authorized a tax exemption for increases in property values due to improvements made to facilitate the use and access of homes by people who are "permanently and totally disabled." Identical measures on the matter were sponsored in the Assembly and Senate by Assemblyman Gilbert Wilson (D-5) and Sen Donald Norcross (D-5), where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 86 and Senate Concurrent Resolution 35. It would have amended Article VIII, Section 1 of the New Jersey Constitution.[1][2]

Path to the ballot

See also: Amending the New Jersey Constitution

In New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments have two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature can either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions.

The Senate and Assembly versions were introduced two days apart: January 14 and 16, 2014, respectively. SCR 35 was referred to the Community and Urban Affairs Committee and ACR 86 to the Human Services Committee.[4][5]
