Mixed Martial Arts Bill Passes House

May 10, 2017

House Bill 6266, a Mixed Martial Arts bill (MMA) that I am happy to champion, passed the House of Representatives and it’s on its way to the Senate for consideration.

The measure would establish regulations to allow MMA sessions in the state of Connecticut lifting burdens on promoters and putting protections in place for competitors.

I would like to thank my colleagues in the House for recognizing that passage of this legislation makes practical sense at a time when we are looking to generate much needed revenue across the state. I am pleased we have loosened outdated state regulations which prevented us from hosting MMA sports events causing us to miss millions of dollars on untapped revenue.
