One state lawmaker says he's hopeful to see an override of a vetoed bill involving foster care.
Wrap: Current law requires foster parents to give their fingerprints to departments at the federal and state level for background checks.
Webb City Republican Representative Charlie Davis says a vetoed bill would take a burdon off foster parents. He says they would no longer need to renew their fingerprints every two years.
Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the bill back in July because he says it violated an amendment to the Missouri constitution.
But the Republican lawmaker is still pushing for an override.
|Description: "I honestly do believe that it is going to be easily overriden."|
Nixon wrote in his veto letter that the bill is unnecessary because there is a new electronic fingerprint system in the works. But Davis says the vetoed bill will be a temporary fix until the system is set-up.
