Hochul, a Bills fan who began her availability to the Niagara County media by saying she received statewide compliments about the Bills’ 35-0 victory on Sunday in Miami, said the The stadium’s situation worried him a lot.
âI think about it all the time. I’ve spoken to people behind the scenes just to gather information. But we’ll make the right decision for the people of western New York,â Hochul said.
When Hochul left the podium after a 6-minute session with reporters, one shouted a question, asking if the state would release the stadium study.
Bills and PSE officials insist that a growing list of issues and problems at Highmark Stadium can only be resolved by building a new stadium.
âYes,â Hochul said over her shoulder as she left.
Hochul has promised greater transparency in state government since becoming governor. However, his office on Wednesday did not provide basic details on the education contract, such as its cost.
Matthew Janiszewski, a spokesperson for Hochul, said he was not sure which company was doing the study on behalf of the state.
The state previously hired Los Angeles-based AECOM to examine potential sites for a new Bills stadium in 2014, at a time when the team was on sale following the death of its founding owner, Ralph C. Wilson Jr. State officials were hopeful that the AECOM analysis could help them, and any new owners of Bills, make decisions about a future stadium.
