Why was this measure even on the ballot. It doesn't expire for 5 more years yet people didn't read the fine print to see this measure didn't need to be on a ballot for at least 3 more years. This measure was a waste of time and money right now.Things will change over 5 years . It would have been better to wait longer to see if changes are needed to this measure before extending it just to extend it.
