(f) The authority to issue revenue bonds under this article or bonds under Article 4 (commencing with Section 6584) shall be of no further force and effect after December 31, 2015, unless (1) the joint powers authority has initially issued revenue bonds or bonds on or prior to December 31, 2015, or (2) the joint powers authority is unable to initially issue revenue bonds or bonds to accomplish the purpose of this section by reason of litigation relating to the initial issuance, in which case the authority to initially issue revenue bonds under this article and bonds under Article 4 (commencing with Section 6584) shall continue to be effective until the final determination of that litigation and for one year thereafter.
