Bill to Legalize MMA To Go to Assembly Floor

By Jason Weinstein.
A bill that would legalize mixed martial arts in New York State is expected to make it's way to the floor of the Assembly for a vote.

According to the Capitol Confidential blog the bill has advanced past the Assembly Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Development Committee this morning.

Over the past seven years the Senate has consistently passed bills that would legalize the sport in the state, however those effort have stalled in the Assembly. A spokesperson for Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo says the bill may make it's way to the floor by the end of the day.
