JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have endorsed the creation of a government database to track people's prescription drug purchases.
 
Lawmakers for years have debated the idea, and Missouri now is the only state without legislation to create the database.
 
Sponsoring House member Kevin Engler says setting up a database can help prevent overdose deaths. One opponent voiced concerns about the potential for data breaches and government overreach.
 
Under the proposal, pharmacies would submit the identity of patients receiving medicine as well as the drug's quantity, the date and other details. Data could be given to doctors and law officers who have subpoenas.
 
House members endorsed the legislation by voice vote Tuesday. It needs a second affirmative vote before moving to the state Senate.

Supporters of an increase to the minimum wage are rallying in Jefferson City today.

 

They plan to testify for the Small Business, Insurance, and Industry committee to support a bill that raises Missouri's minimum wage to $10 an hour.

 

Research from the Economic Policy Institute says that a family of four needs to earn nearly $65,000 a year to support a modest living. A full-time minimum wage worker makes less than $16,000 a year now.

Investigators have identified the two young boys who died in a house fire Monday morning.

 

Firefighters were called to the house in the 8200 block of Airport Road before 6 AM Monday. Stephen and Cheronna Towns, as well as their 4-month-old daughter Deja, managed to escape the blaze through a bedroom window. Firefighters extinguished the fire and found the bodies of 3-year-old Isaiah Towns and 4-year-old Stephen Towns Jr. in the house.

 

Stephen Towns received critical burns from the fire when he tried to save the young boys. Several space heaters were found inside the home, and officials say they may have contributed to the fire. The investigation is ongoing.
