Bills president Russ Brandon and U.S. Senator Charles Schumer were among the appointees announced Thursday in a move that came two days after team owner Ralph Wilson died. The Bills appointees were the final ones added to what will be a 19-member group made up of public and private leaders.
The establishment of a stadium search committee was a requirement of the 10-year lease the Bills negotiated with the state and county in December 2012.
The lease agreement included the commitment of $130 million in public and private funds for upgrades at Ralph Wilson Stadium, which opened in 1973.
