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 person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because the team declined to comment. A news conference with County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Dolphins chief executive officer Mike Dee to announce the vote will be held Monday.

The Dolphins believe passage by Miami-Dade County voters would help the chance of the plan’s approval by the Florida Legislature. 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.
