Grisanti calls on Assembly to bring MMA legislation to a voteby jmaloni
Says more than $68 million in new revenue statewide if legislation is passed
State Sen. Mark Grisanti released this statement Thursday:
"Today's economic impact study of mixed martial arts in New York state reaffirms the need to pass legislation to legalize MMA. My Senate colleagues have successfully passed this bill, which I have co-sponsored, every year since I have been in office. Once the legislature is back in session in January, it is my hope that the Assembly will bring this legislation to the floor. With an estimated $33 million in new revenue for upstate New York and $68 million statewide on the line, the Assembly must take action on this legislation. To me, this is a no-brainer. Bring it to the floor!"
