Governor Wants Bills to Remain in Buffalo

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – Governor Eliot Spitzer says he is also involved in efforts to make sure the Buffalo Bills remain in Western New York's future.

After appearing in downtown Buffalo Wednesday to promote the state's investment in higher education, Governor Spitzer says he believes we will begin to see an enormous outpouring of effort to make sure the Bills remain in Buffalo. In fact, Spitzer says he is already part of some talks.

Spitzer says he believe the Bills plans to play eight games in Toronto to market and regionalize the team is actually a good step.

And in Washington Wednesday, U-S Senator Charles Schumer met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Schumer says the commissioner is committed to doing anything he and the league can to keep the Bills in Buffalo. Schumer says he and Goodell are planning to sit down soon with Bills owner Ralph Wilson to discuss the matter.
