Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards came to Saints camp today to announce the state is moving forward on an announced deal to make $450 million in upgrades to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The bond commission will meet Thursday to discuss the state's share of the funds.

The money will come from the Saints, the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District, and the state of Louisiana, said Edwards.

Edwards said they are also working on extending the Saints agreement another 15 years.

"The Superdome is an iconic stadium. It has served the city and state extremely well," said Edwards.
