JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to legislation that would prohibit schools from tracking students electronically.

The bill would bar school districts from requiring students to use "radio frequency identification technology" that would track or monitor their locations.

Supporters say they are not aware of instances in Missouri where the technology has been used.

House members passed the measure 90-56 on Monday. It passed the Senate last month 27-5 and goes now to Gov. Jay Nixon.

Student tracking bill is SB523
