Missouri lawmakers have voted to name a new Mississippi River bridge for the late St. Louis Cardinals great Stan Musial and part of a highway for construction worker Andy Gammon, who died building the bridge.

House members gave the legislation final approval 149-1 on Monday. It now goes to Gov. Jay Nixon. 

The U.S. Senate in March unanimously approved its own legislation to name the bridge after Musial. But the Illinois House favors calling the span over the Mississippi the Veterans Memorial Bridge. 

The Missouri legislation also would name an existing bridge in St. Louis for former Congressman William L. Clay, who won the first of 16 U.S. House terms in 1968.  

Bridge names are HB303 and HB304
