      Lawmakers vote to override Mo. foster care bill

      Missouri lawmakers have voted to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of legislation requiring additional fingerprinting of foster parents.

      The Senate voted 25-9 on Wednesday, and the House approved the override 109-52.

      The law requires people providing emergency foster care or seeking licensure as a foster parent to submit three sets of fingerprints instead of the current two sets.

      The extra set of prints would be kept by a division within the Department of Social Services so that people would not have to submit new fingerprints every two years.
