New York Senate Bill 1707A, i.e. the bill to authorize mixed martial arts in New York, overwhelmingly passed the Senate Standing Committee on Cultural Affairs, Tourism, Parks and Recreation, by a vote of 13-1 this morning.

If last year is any indication, the bill will now go straight to the full Senate for a vote.

The overwhelming support for the bill is a good sign and so is the fact that the bill is through the Tourism Committee this early in the legislative session, i.e. approximately three (3) months before the bill was referred out of the Tourism Committee last year.

I take Rogan, RD 1 sub. Dana hasn't been practicing his TDD since the Ortiz fight fell through.

I troll Bob Reilly's facebook every time he posts something anti-mma. He hasn't said much lately, which makes me think it might happen this time.
