The New Jersey Water Consumption Tax for Open Space Preservation Funding Amendment, ACR 116 did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have dedicated revenue from water consumption and diversion user fees for open space, farmland and historic preservation. Assemblyman John McKeon (D-27) was the primary sponsor of this measure in the New Jersey Assembly, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 116. The measure would have amended Article VIII, Section II of the New Jersey Constitution by adding a new paragraph to it.[1]
