Legislative Leanings: Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz on MMA


Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz on the MMA bill:
I have serious concerns about the impact of a sport such as Mixed Martial Arts on the mental and physical health of participants, particularly at a time when we are just beginning to understand the long-term effects of sports-related injuries like concussions. However, as with any other bill that crosses my desk during the legislative session, I will carefully consider the merits of a proposal to legalize the sport.
