(KMOV) -- St. Louis firefighters may be able to live outside city limits soon.
Missouri lawmakers overwhelmingly passed a bill that would give firefighters the option to move.
The president of Firefighters Local 73 said the St. Louis School District is one of the main reasons his members pushed for the change.
Now Gov. Jay Nixon must sign the bill for it to become law. In 2005, Missouri approved a similar change for St. Louis Police.
