A bill that would allow Louisiana lawmakers to set hunting dates and limits has advanced in a Senate committee.

It would replace the seven gubernatorial appointees on the Wildlife and Fisheries Commission with a panel of two dozen lawmakers.

Wildlife and Fisheries officials says the current system works well and keeps the state from political management of the state's natural resources.

The bill now heads to the full Senate.
