Chiefs training camp still attracting contractors

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - Contractors are lining up for a Kansas City Chiefs training-camp project, although the funding could still be frozen at the groundbreaking a month from now.

The Chiefs plan to move their camp from Wisconsin to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.

Dave Williams, the university's athletic director, says about 18 contractors have picked up plans for the indoor training facility. Bid opening for the training facility is scheduled for the week of June 11, and construction expected to start July 1.

But the $25 million in tax credits that the Missouri Development Finance Board approved for the Chiefs has been on hold because the state wants a 10-year commitment to keep the camp in Missouri.
