KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A U.S. representative from Missouri is proposing a change to what is covered under your health savings account.

Rep. Jason Smith, a Republican in the southeast part of the state, wants to expand what the HSA covers now. Currently, HSA only cover medical expenses. Smith wants to expand the coverage to fitness equipment too.

The bill currently has bi-partisan support.

HSAs are tax-exempt, which means things like tennis shoes and fitness equipment would not be taxed under Smith’s proposal.

Smith introduced the bill back in March.
