State Sen. Mark Grisanti offered these comments Wednesday:

"I was extremely pleased to learn of the decision by the Buffalo Bills to end their arrangement to play one 'home' game per year in Toronto.

"Playing their entire home schedule at Ralph Wilson Stadium will be an economic shot in the arm for the south towns, in general, and the Town of Orchard Park in particular.

"The economic activity generated by a single home game is tremendous, and to increase the number of games from seven to eight is significant.

"I applaud this decision. It is welcome news for the taxpayers of Erie County."
