ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement with Erie County and the state on a lease deal for the Ralph Wilson Stadium that will keep the NFL franchise in western New York.
Cuomo told a packed news conference at the team’s headquarters in Orchard Park that the lease keeps the Bills in Orchard Park at least through the first seven years of the 10-year pact.
The agreement includes $130 million in renovations for the nearly 40-year-old stadium, with the Bills providing $35 million and the state and county covering the other $95 million.
Cuomo spoke via a satellite television hookup from New York City because stormy weather Friday prevented him from flying upstate.
