MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the Miami Dolphins' plan seeking tax money for an upgrade of their stadium says the team has agreed to a referendum on the proposal.
The Dolphins believe passage by Miami-Dade County voters would help the chance of the plan's approval by the Florida Legislature.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because the team declined to comment. A news conference announcing the vote is expected to be held as early as Monday.
Team owner Stephen Ross earlier resisted holding a referendum on the issue, saying there wasn't time for a vote before legislators would need to act.
The change of heart comes after local legislators left the stadium bill off their list of priorities for this year's session.
