New York State Senate Still Likes MMA


It literally means almost nothing, but it's a good gesture nonetheless. The New York State Senate, which every years takes a pair of scissors and a marker to the governor's annual budget proposal and cuts and adds what they think is important, has opted to include MMA in their suggested edits this year.

The entirety of the reference to the sport is: "Part VV: The Senate advances language to allow mixed martial arts in the state of New York."

That's it. And like I said, it doesn't mean much, especially since for the past few years the MMA bill has been breezing through the Senate. But hey, it's the thought that counts - right?

It's only one line near the end of a lengthy document, but if reading governmental publications is your thing, you can read the whole 55-page novella here.
