TOPEKA, Kansas – The state’s revamped Safe Haven bill is one step closer to receiving Governor Sam Brownback’s signature.

On Friday, the House voted to approve a re-worked version of the bill. It passed 121-0.

Last week, the Senate voted unanimously to pass the law after adding a couple of locations that would be considered Safe Havens like police departments.

The new law will protect mothers’ identities when dropping off children.
