Report: New York State Senate Passes MMA Bill

May 13, 2014 8:11 pm by BJPENN.COM News

The New York State Senate held firm to their guns today and passed a bill to legalize Mixed Martial Arts in the State of New York.

Today’s vote, at 44-16 in favor, wasn’t even close and marks the fifth-year straight the bill has gone through the state’s Senate.

The bill must now pass in the state’s Assembly in order to become law. It’s in the same stage as the past several years and is expected to stall there once again.
