ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Missouri lawmakers are considering whether to mark an official day to celebrate sliced bread.

A bill pending in the state House would designate July 7th as Missouri Sliced Bread Day.

Supporters say the day is needed to promote tourism in  Chillicothe, where the first commercially sliced bread was sold on July 7th, 1928.
