      The Missouri House has approved legislation lifting the state's motorcycle helmet mandate for riders 21 and older.

      State law currently requires anyone riding a motorcycle to wear a helmet. Lawmakers for years have debated proposals that would make helmets optional.

      The House passed the legislation 93-56 Thursday. It now moves to the state Senate.

      The Legislature has about three weeks to pass new legislation.
