Legislative Scorecard: The Undecideds


The Assembly is on Easter break right now, but when they return on April 21 one of the items they'll tackle is the MMA bill, which will be discussed in a closed-door Democratic conference. An informal "for" and "against" tally tells us that seven of the 23 Assemblymembers who are undecided about MMA must be swayed for the bill to make it from the conference to the floor. Just seven. And then the UFC can come to Madison Square Garden in December like they want to.

Here are some of the Assemblymembers who have yet to give the sport the thumbs up or thumbs down. Each of them holds a position of leadership. Remember: If you reach out to them, BE RESPECTFUL.
