Missouri businessman Rex Sinquefield has donated $1.3 million to a committee that supports overhauling the state's tax code.

The committee Let Voters Decide backs a proposed ballot measure that would replace Missouri's income tax with a broader sales tax. Missouri Ethics Commission records show Sinquefield made the donation Monday. Campaign contributions of more than $5,000 must be reported within 48 hours.
