ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation allowing parents more time to give up newborns, requiring screening for a heart defect and dealing with mandatory reporters of child abuse.
Nixon held a bill signing ceremony Tuesday at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
The legislation will permit parents up to 45 days instead of the current five days to give up their babies. And starting in 2014, screening for critical congenital heart disease will be required for infants.
Another newly signed bill seeks to close a loophole for child abuse reporting. Mandatory reporters suspecting child abuse or neglect currently must "immediately report" or "cause a report to be made." That means reporters can pass the information to another person in their organization. Information will now go directly to state officials.

The St. Charles police say a two-year-old boy was left behind at the restaurant by his daycare. He was one of 14 kids taken to the Chuck E Cheese by two women who work for Rich & Little Daycare in Moline Acres. Fox 2 reports that witnesses say there were just too many kids for only two employees.
Chuck E. Cheese employees noticed the boy wandering around and called police. The officers said the employees handled the situation perfectly. The boy has been reunited with his mother. An investigation into the situation is ongoing.
