Measure Y contains a sunset provision meaning that it will expire on
March 31, 2015 unless reauthorized by the voters at a general election
prior to that time. If the voters do not reauthorize Measure Y, the
1/2-cent additional sales tax would no longer be collected by retailers
in the City of San Luis Obispo beginning April 1, 2015.
