JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KFVS) - Governor Mike Parson signed legislation on Tuesday, July 9 making the Kansas City Chiefs Missouri’s official NFL team.
The resolution was SCR 4.
“For over 50 years, the Kansas City Chiefs have played an important role in the city and the state,” Governor Parson said. “Sports are a big part of Missouri’s heritage, and we are proud to have the Chiefs represent our great state in the NFL.”
