Additionally, two-thirds of voters (66%-33%) cited the project’s economic impact as a convincing reason to support the plan when read the statement: “This project alone would provide an estimated $3.7 billion boost to the Maryland economy and 7,500 new, well-paying jobs in construction and other industries – including union jobs with benefits.”
