TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WKMG) - A bill inspired by 2-year-old Caylee Anthony's death has been passed by the Florida House.

The bill (HB 37) was unanimously approved Wednesday by a 113-0 vote after clearing every committee with no votes against it.

It would increase the maximum to five years in prison from a year in jail if someone knowingly makes a false statement to police about a missing child.

Caylee's mother - Casey Anthony - was acquitted of murdering Caylee last year in Orlando but she was convicted of lying to investigators.

A companion measure also is moving in the Senate.
