JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to a bill that allows people conducting spinal cord research to receive larger state grants.

The legislation would increase the maximum size of grants for spinal cord research from $50,000 to $250,000. The grants are awarded by MU. . They are funded by a $2 court fee charged on every criminal or infraction case.

The House passed the bill 94-63 on Tuesday. Senators had approved the legislation in March, so it now goes to the governor.
