JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has endorsed a bill that would allow motorcyclists to forgo wearing helmets on the road.
The measure given first-round approval Tuesday would allow riders over the age of 21 to not wear a helmet when travelling.
Current law requires motorists to wear helmets or face a fine of up to $300 on the first offense. Future violations carried steeper fines and the possibility of prison sentences.
The bill needs one more House vote before moving to the Senate. Lawmakers adjourn May 17.

Police are investigating after two cars were apparently set on fire on the Missouri Baptist University campus in St. Louis County.
KSDK-TV reports that the first car was found on fire late Tuesday or early Wednesday on a campus parking lot. A second blaze at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday destroyed another car on another campus parking lot.
No one was hurt in either fire.
Anheuser-Busch's Bud Light is center stage as the brewer is behind a summer-long "Music First" promotion that will culminate in 50 concerts on a single day in August in 50 states.
Bud Light partnered with Live Nation Entertainment to create the 50/50/1 concert series to be held nationwide on Aug. 1.
Some artists that have been announced, include the Flaming Lips, Alex Clare and Sublime with Rome.
We still don't know who will perform at the St. Louis concert which will be held at the Pageant. That announcement will be made by June 1st.
