A proposal that would place hunting, fishing and wildlife harvesting rights in the Nebraska constitution is heading to the November ballot.

Lawmakers voted 41-3 on Tuesday to approve the constitutional amendment for voter consideration, despite objections that it isn't needed.

Omaha Senator Pete Pirsch says he sponsored the measure to shield
Nebraska from animal advocacy groups that oppose hunting.

Omaha Senator Brenda Council says the amendment is unnecessary and would clutter the state constitution with an issue pushed by hunting advocates.
