Bills' 10-year lease approved by county lawmakers

  •  

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills' 10-year, $271 million lease agreement has received unanimous approval from Erie County lawmakers.

The vote, taken Thursday, comes days after NFL owners approved the terms and condition of the agreement the Bills reached in December with county and New York State officials. The final step for the deal to take effect is approval from state lawmakers, which the Bills anticipate to happen soon.

The lease includes $130 million in renovations to Ralph Wilson Stadium, which are scheduled to begin this year.

State and county taxpayers would be on the hook for $226.8 million over the 10-year period.
