House approves renaming McGwire Highway

Missouri lawmakers are a step closer to taking away Mark McGwire's Highway.

The stretch of Interstate 70 in St. Louis was named for the Cardinals' slugger in 1999, in one year McGwire hit 70 home runs.

But McGwire has now admitted he used steroids, and the state senate voted unanimously yesterday to rename the section of interstate the Mark Twain Highway.

The measure now goes to the house.
