ALBANY, NY (WIVB) - Westchester County Assemblyman Steve Katz blasted the Buffalo Bills when he took the floor of the Legislature Monday night.
Katz, who is a Republican from Yorktown questioned the $60 million announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo to upgrade Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Members of the Assembly took to the floor to debate the state budget.
"Aren't they wealthy enough that they can handle their own operating support? Why are we doing this for them?" asked Katz. "Honestly, no offense intended to my colleagues up in Buffalo, but why would us, with all the needs our state needs, to be giving $60 million to billionaires who can more than afford all of this?"
