Pa. lawmakers handing hunting decisions over to game commissioners

Pennsylvania

(WHTM) — Some Pennsylvania lawmakers don’t want the responsibility of deciding how to regulate hunting days.

They have introduced a Senate bill that would allow the game commission, and not state legislators, to decide how many Sundays would be open for hunting.

Last year, lawmakers approved three Sundays for hunting and the game commission decided on what could be hunted and one which days. The new bill would give the game commission the authority to make all those decisions.
