St. Joseph, MO (2009-07-10) Both St. Joseph and Chillicothe are on standby as a State decision to freeze funding for the Tour of Missouri is discussed.
Both communities are preparing to host the state-wide bicycle tour this fall… which has generated about 60 million dollars economic impact the past 2 years.
But Governor Nixon has frozen the 1 and a half million dollars coming from the State Division of Tourism… which organizers warn will kill the tour this year.
Chillicothe Visitor's Bureau Director Amy Supple says hosting the Tour of Missouri would pump money into the local economy.
The Governor could make a decision on cancelling the Tour of Missouri sometime next week.
