The Session is Almost Over - Why Hasn't the MMA Bill Passed Yet?


The 2015 legislative session ends on June 17, which means there are only nine work days left for the Assembly to pass the MMA bill. Yes, there's still time to get it done, but it was't supposed to be this hard. After all, Sheldon Silver's arrest and subsequent abdication of the Speaker throne - and his replacement by MMA supporter Carl Heastie - should have cleared all Culinary Union obstacles and paved the way for the bill's easy passage. That hasn't happened, though. Why not?
