Bills Get $600 Million Stadium Subsidy in New York State
Bloomberg (Martin Z. Braun)
The new Bills stadium was attacked as welfare for
billionaires by Hochul’s fellow Democrats and by both
free-market and liberal watchdog groups. Economists who have
studied public sports subsidies have found that the impact
of new stadiums on the local economy is small.
The benefits are exaggerated, they say, because consumers
who spend money on sports would likely spend their money on
other forms of local entertainment. Analyses supporting
subsidies also fail to account for opportunity costs. New
York could have spent taxpayer money on infrastructure or
education, which have the potential to spur economic
Good government groups also criticized Hochul’s deal for a
conflict of interest. Her husband Bill, is the senior vice
president and general counsel for Delaware North, which
operates concession, premium dining and retail at the Bills’
Hochul has said Delaware North
wasn’t a party to the negotiations with the state and that
the Bills make decisions about vendors
Liz Krueger, a Manhattan Democrat and chair of the State
Senate’s finance committee said the Bills’ subsidy is the
latest in a long-line of “New York state using its economic
development money very badly.”
An audit of state spending on select high tech projects
found the economic benefits paled in comparison to the cost.
The audit by state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli found that of
the $800 million spent on a SolarCity solar panel
manufacturing plant, the state received $432 million in
economic benefits, or $0.54 for every $1 spent.
“It’s just a mind-boggling amount of public money into a
private sports stadium owned by a family of billionaires who
can certainly afford to pay for it themselves,” Krueger
