Both the House and the senate have now voted in support of the "safe haven" tax break. But both houses have attached the idea to tax bills that have yet to be approved. The amendment's senate sponsor, Ted House from St. Charles, says he thinks it's a concept most legislators agree with.

Contents: House says people in a crisis situation need a safe place to go until things cool down and cooler heads prevail. He says this kind of tax break could help save lives.

House says the safe haven amendment is on several bills in both legislative bodies. He says he hopes at least one of those will pass. From Jefferson City, I'm Jack Dolan.
