The House spent more than two hours debating a bill aimed at curbing domestic violence before finally taking a vote. Stacy Covitz has the story from Jefferson City.
The House added more than a dozen amendments before giving initial approval to that bill.
Columbia Represenative Vicky Riback Wilson sponsored the bill.
She says it will bring domestic violence law into the 21st century.
The bill faces a final House vote before heading to the Senate. From the state capitol, I'm Stacy Covitz.
