The Erie County Legislature has voted to approve the Buffalo Bills 10-year lease at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park.
The agreement will cost the county $103 million over the next decade, and it will have to borrow $41 million immediately for stadium improvements.
Some lawmakers criticized the deal as too expensive after it was announced, but yesterday's vote on the lease agreement was unanimous.
The Empire State Development Corporation and the NFL still need to approve the lease.
