Miami-Dade 2040 LRTP - Oct. 23, 2014

Potential Revenue Sources Potential new public sector revenues (taxes or fees) can be categorized into existing sources and new sources. The existing sources may be increased either by Board action (such as the Board of County Commissioners or the MDX Board of Directors) or by countywide referendum, with no approval or new legislation required from the State legislature. New funding sources, by contrast, would generally require a referendum by the voters, legislative grant of significant new authority to the County, and in some cases a state constitutional amendment might be required. However, changes to some of the "smaller" existing fees could also require state legislative approval. The existing and potential new local public sector sources that may be considered by the MPO are summarized in Table 5-5. The existing and new local public sector sources under consideration by the MPO are summarized in Figure 5-3. The Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) is the only new possible revenue source identified.
