Ok, so the bill passed.

Does that mean they still have to do like 7 more of those things for it to actually take effect?

the guy behind the first speaker looks like Jon Jones! UFC muscle in the back in case it went tits up!

Also how do people get in a position to decide on these things when they have no clue about it? That Liz Krueger woman was talking about the well documented health risks that have plagued the sport? Where has she found these?

Well I think its clear that Bob Reilly is been paid off not to pass the bill so I would not get to excited just yet.

Lets be real any argument about trying to protect NY residents from viewing the sport is completely shot by the fact they can watch it on TV anyway or just travel elsewhere to where events are held to watch it live, so passing this is the only credible result, if its not passed then its just proof that illegal payoff have been made by apposing parties to people like Reilly to block this bill.
