REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Bruce Libhaber read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Chairman Barreiro relinquished the Chair to Vice Chairman Suarez and moved a motion to forward this resolution to the County Commission with a favorable recommendation. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Moss, followed by discussion. Commissioner Edmonson asked if adding a signature line to the Metrorail Golden and Patriot Passports would make them official identification (ID) cards. Commissioner Barreiro noted that adding a signature line to these cards meant that they could be accepted as an official ID card and it would facilitate any entity requiring both a picture and a signature. Responding to Commissioner Moss inquiry whether staff had also explored the idea of including a photo on these passports, Commissioner Barreiro noted both passports already included a picture. Hearing no further comments or questions, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution as presented

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PROVIDE A SIGNATURE LINE ON ALL GOLDEN AND PATRIOT PASSPORTS ISSUED AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE HEREIN

BODY

WHEREAS, Miami-Dade Transit provides fare free transit service for Miami-Dade County residents aged sixty five and above and low-income honorably discharged veterans through the Golden and Patriot Passport programs; and
WHEREAS, the Golden and Patriot Passports include a photograph of the applicable transit rider; and
WHEREAS, providing a signature line on the actual Golden or Patriot Passport would deter fraud as well as provide a potentially convenient method of identification for Miami-Dade County residents,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee to provide a signature line on all Golden and Patriot Passports issued after the effective date of this Resolution.
