KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City Council committee rejected a proposal to stop a new weapons plant from producing parts for nuclear weapons.

Despite the committee's decision on Wednesday, the issue might still go a citywide vote.

A group called KC Peace Planters gathered thousands of signatures for an initiative that recommends converting the new plant in south Kansas City into one that develops green technology. The plant is being built for Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies

After several hours of debate, the city's planning and zoning commission voted 4-1 against the proposal. The measure goes to the full council June 16.

The Kansas City Star reports that if the full council refuses to adopt the petitioners' ordinance, the group can ask the city clerk to place it on the November ballot.
