Is Measure F-20 a general tax or a special tax?

Measure F-20 is a general tax. It proposes a 1.0% (or one-cent) transactions and use tax, commonly known as a sales tax. The revenue from this sales tax would be deposited into the City’s General Fund--none of it would go to the County or State. The revenue from this sales tax could be used for any valid general municipal purpose. As a general tax, Measure F-20 will require approval by a simple majority ("50 percent plus one") of those voting on the measure.
