State tourism panel backs Tour of Missouri

The Missouri Tourism Commission voted 7-0 today to maintain $1.5 million in state funding for the Tour of Missouri bicycle race.

The Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader reports many of the commissioners said the independent panel has an obligation to fund the Tour of Missouri this year, but future years would be subject to further debate.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon's Department of Economic Development has recommended the governor's budget office withhold $1.5 million from the Division of Tourism specifically for the bicycle race.

Ultimately, Nixon's administration will have to decide whether to free up the money.
