MMA in New York? Again, the answer seems to be no
Yet again, a bill to legalize MMA in New York state appears to be sunk before reaching a vote in the state’s assembly. The bill’s sponsor, Democratic Assembly Leader Joseph Morelle, today told Politics on the Hudson that, despite encouraging signals and a final push from MMA supporters, the votes aren’t there. After this year’s session was extended to vote on several high-profile bills, Morelle said the MMA bill lost momentum as legislators ran out of time. “A number of members who are counted as supporters were just unavailable today because of the scheduling, that we weren’t expected to be here this long,” he said, “and it’s really complicated efforts to get to 76 (votes). I think it’s looking less likely as the day wears on.” MMAjunkie was unable to reach Morelle or his spokesperson for an update. Seventy-six is the figure needed to get the assembly bill, A02604C, out of the 105-member Democratic conference and onto the assembly floor, where there is strong support among minority Republicans to legalize MMA. In the Republican-led senate, earlier MMA bills have passed in six previous legislative sessions. UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner estimated this year’s MMA bill, which reportedly received more support after additional insurance safeguards were added, would receive 95 to 100 votes if it went to a general vote. But without the Democrats’ support, the bill is destined to expire in the assembly’s Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Development Committee, as it has for more than a half-decade.
