Kansas City's Civic Council has given $10,000 to a committee formed to fight an anti-nuclear weapons proposal on the April ballot.
The "Keep KC Jobs Committee" was formed last fall, after anti-nuclear activists finally placed a measure on the ballot that would prohibit Kansas City from financially supporting or subsidizing any future projects involving nuclear weapons.
The Civic Council represents leaders of the area's biggest private businesses.
Honeywell, which is moving into new space in south Kansas City where non-nuclear components for nuclear weapons are made, has already given $10,000 to the pro-nuke campaign, most of which went to Pat Gray's company.
He'll be running the campaign against the proposal, which will be Question 3 on the April ballot.
Rachel MacNair, organizer for supporters of Question 3, said "we're not pleased (with the donation from the business leaders) but we're not surprised."
She said supporters have formed the "Committee for Better Use of Financial Incentives," which she said has raised $5,150.
The Missouri Ethics Commission, however, does not show any filing for a committee by that name, or a similar name.
UPDATE: MacNair said the failiure to file the disclosure was an oversight that will be corrected.
