Please rewrite "Sunset provision" section[edit]

Under, the section called "Sunset provision", it presently says: "Prior to Pub. L. 111–312, IRC § 1014(f) provided that this section would not apply to decedents dying after December 31, 2009. As of December 2010, the anticipated sunset was therefore removed." As a layperson, I may have understood 98% of the article before this. But I have no idea what this means, or what the word "therefore" is there for. No definition for "sunset" was there either, which doesn't help. Can someone knowledgable about this, and certain of the law here, please rewrite this in plain English without multiple (or any) negatives in it? Thank you!

== Class ==

Start class because while this article has many referenced sections devoted to the technical aspect of the topic, it does not have sections devoted to the history or impact of the topic.EECavazos (talk) 17:28, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

== Priority ==

Low priority because this article is on a technical function of tax law within one country, so it would be more esoteric.EECavazos (talk) 17:29, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
