Created: 02/11/2014 3:02 AM WHEC.com

It’s news that could make Bills fans uneasy: Governor Cuomo has set up a committee to look into the possibility of a new stadium.

The lease agreement for Ralph Wilson Stadium lasts through 2023, and it includes a multi-million dollar penalty for relocating. When that lease was signed in 2013, Governor Cuomo promised to start looking into other options. If new ownership takes over, they could ask for a new location.

According to the Buffalo News, the five people in the Governor's "New Stadium Working Group" include Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy, the Mayor of Buffalo and team representatives.

The committee is expected to meet in the next two weeks.
