A Lake Charles attorney has been appointed to the Wildlife and Fisheries Committee by Governor Bobby Jindal.
Bart Yakupzack is an attorney with the Gray Law Firm in Lake Charles. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Chamber Southwest Louisiana and is a member of the National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, the Coastal Conservation Association and the LSU FWF Alumni Association.
"The Wildlife and Fisheries Commission was created to protect, conserve, and replenish the natural resources and wildlife of the state, including all aquatic life. The commission has the authority to establish definite management programs and policies and to approve and accept all contracts at its discretion," said the Governor's office in a statement.
Yakupzack will serve as a member-at-large on the seven-member commission, pending confirmation by the state senate.
