The Missouri Senate cracks down on the selling of human remains. Brian Higgins has more from Jefferson City.
The trafficing of bones and funeral artifacts was dealt a blow in the Senate. In an effort to cut down on a rather odd business, the Senate passed a bill making it a crime to sell human remains. Northern Missouri Senator Sam Graves says there is a big business for human remains.
Originally the bill was concerned only with Native American remains but after reconsideration it was amended to include any human remains. The bill now goes to Governor for his approval. From the Capitol, I'm Brian Higgins.
