FUNDING PLEDGE: In Buffalo, Tom Precious notes despite one administration budget document claiming New York "was setting aside money in an $84 million pot to help keep the Buffalo Bills in Western New York, it turns out the money -- $2.94 million -- is merely the final year of a state funding pledge made in 1998 by former Gov. George E. Pataki when the team renovated its stadium." The budget contains "no indication as to whether the state will commit any new money to keeping the team in Buffalo when the stadium lease expires in July 2013" (BUFFALO NEWS, 1/19).
