States weigh 'Caylee's Law' in verdict aftermath

FILE - This undated file photo released by the Orange County Sheriff's Office in Orlando, Fla., shows Caylee Marie Anthony. Texas state Sen. Chris Harris says he will introduce a new law to make it a felony for a parent or guardian to not report a missing child. The Arlington Republican will name the law after Caylee Anthony, the daughter of Casey Anthony. The Florida mother did not report her daughter missing for more than a month. She later said her daughter died accidently. Casey Anthony was found innocent this week of murder charges. (AP Photo/Orange County Sheriff's Office, File)

Lawmakers outraged over Casey Anthony's acquittal have responded by proposing so-called Caylee's laws that would allow prosecutors to bring felony charges against parents who do not quickly report missing children.
