ST. LOUIS (AP) _ A newspaper says the proposed riverfront football stadium in St. Louis already has cost taxpayers $3 million.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that that figure is based on the latest invoices released this week from financing advisers, railroad track engineers, contract attorneys and management.

The newspaper says that the public board that runs the Rams’ current home,┬áthe Edward Jones Dome, is paying nearly all the bills, with the state picking up the tab on some financial advice.

The Rams are year-to-year on their lease for the Edward Jones Dome and could leave as early as 2016, meaning the upcoming NFL season could be their last in St. Louis.
