A statement from Russ Brandon, Buffalo Bills president and chief executive officer, on the Erie County Legislature's vote to approve the lease extension with the team:
"We are pleased to learn that the Erie County Legislature has voted unanimously to approve the extension of our lease. This was an important step in the continued process for finalizing the lease agreement and remaining on schedule for the renovations to Ralph Wilson Stadium. On behalf of the entire Buffalo Bills organization, we want to thank the Legislature for their support. We also want to thank Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and Deputy County Executive Rich Tobe for their continued support and tireless efforts throughout this process. We look forward to the final approval by the New York State Legislature in the near future."
