KCUR: Tour of Missouri Still in Limbo

KANSAS CITY, MO (kcur) - Ready, set, now wait.

Missouri cycling fans will have to keep holding their breath for a final decision from the governor as to whether he'll approve state funding for the Tour of Missouri.

Nixon said financing the tour is a fiscal challenge.

"There's also mental hospitals out there, there's also special need kids, but the bottom line is that we're very - very hopeful," Nixon said.

Even if he does green light funding, Nixon said he will require greater transparency as to how taxpayer dollars for the race are used.

Tour officials say they need a final decision from the governor by the end of the week.
