From the looks of it, the Miami Dolphins will be playing in a renovated stadium as early as next season if all goes to plans. The dolphins have long been searching for tax money to help upgrade their establishment but have been denied just as many times.
MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a local referendum on their plan seeking tax money for an upgrade of their stadium, a person familiar with the discussions said Sunday.
The Dolphins believe passage by Miami-Dade County voters would help the chance of the plan's approval by the Florida Legislature, the person told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team declined to comment.
A news conference with County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Dolphins chief executive officer Mike Dee will be held 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.
