JEFFERSON CITY — A panel of Missouri lawmakers has endorsed legislation expanding the state's "move over" law to include state Department of Transportation vehicles with flashing amber or white lights.

Currently, state law only requires drivers to move over for emergency vehicles.

The House and Senate both approved versions of the bill earlier. A compromise worked out Wednesday by negotiators now awaits votes in both chambers.
