In case you didn't know, Missouri plays a big role in the manufacturing of nuclear weapons for the United States of America. That role appears to be growing larger as the state legislature has just approved plans to build a lot more nukes.

The Kansas City National Security Campus for the National Nuclear Security Administration is a massive campus in the western part of Missouri. It's located at 14520 Botts Road in Kansas City and has a mammoth footprint.

The official website for this Missouri facility calls it a "hidden gem in national security". That's nice. Yahoo shared a story from The Kansas City Star reporting that the Missouri legislature has approved plans to make this place even bigger. The plan says it's been approved to "an estimated 2.5 million square feet of office and manufacturing space" and this expansion will continue well into the next decade.

I'm not great at explaining economic plans as massive as this, but the simple explanation is it's a series of huge tax breaks for the facility and the region. The bill was approved by both parties as both claim it will add a large amount of high-paying jobs and be a big boost to the economy of the Kansas City area.

I don't mean to be a party pooper, but this reminds me of the fact that the 1983 movie "The Day After" was set in the Kansas City area. Perhaps that was for a reason.
