GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The Grand Junction City Council has cut funding for the Chamber of Commerce over concerns the chamber is becoming too political. 

On Wednesday, the city voted to yank its $6,000-a-year contribution. Councilor Jim Doody says he believes the chamber has moved from being a group promoting economic development to a political group. 

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, a newly formed arm of the chamber is advocating public policies to help businesses.
