Is Measure D-22 a special tax or a general tax?

Measure D-22 is a "general tax," not a "special tax." Since this is a general tax, a simple majority voter approval ("50 percent plus one") is required to pass the sales tax measure. The transactions and use general tax proposed by Measure D-22 would take effect only if it receives a majority "YES" vote at the November 8, 2022, general municipal election.
