Nebraska Game and Parks Commission gets new powers.

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has some new powers.

Senators passed a bill that expands powers given to the state Game and Parks Commission.

The bill includes conservation orders, hunting seasons, open and closed areas, and bag limits under new administrative procedures.

It will allow the commission to make changes to the orders at a public input meeting, before making their final decision.

An extra provision lets the commission close game seasons if there's a disease epidemic or other circumstances, on an emergency basis.

The bill passed on a 44 to 0 vote.
