VA a Step Closer to Lifting Sunday Hunting Restrictions

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va (WVIR) -

Virginia is one step closer to lifting restrictions on Sunday hunting.

The House of Delegates approved a measure last month to allow hunting on private property on Sundays, with the owner's permission. Now a similar bill sits in the hands of the state Senate.

Lawmakers shot down a proposal Friday to give localities individual discretion over Sunday hunting laws. The Senate will take a final vote next week.

Governor Terry McAuliffe says he will sign the bill when it reaches his desk.
