Issues of Interest:

• On February 4th, both Montgomery and Prince George’s County Executives and the President of University of Maryland rallied business leader support, and both counties declared this was their top transportation priority.

• Voices the Governor cares about are speaking up: Chambers of Commerce, business leaders, and even the association of road builders have praised the project’s economic benefits and its innovative public-private partnership.

• We painted social media Purple on inauguration day and the media noticed.

We’re in the Governor’s budget, showing the state can afford it.

• The entire D.C.-Baltimore Congressional delegation has spoken up in support and$100 million is in the Federal Budget.

According to a recent poll, 2/3s of Montgomery County adults and nearly 6 out of 10 in Prince George’s, Howard, and Anne Arundel adults want to see the project through, as well as a plurality of all Marylanders.
