This article reports that supporters of a $4.7 billion debt proposal that would finance construction of mass transit projects for the Regional Transportation District said last week that the 12-year FasTracks proposal would generate as many as 10,000 jobs and as much as $2.9 billion for the economy of Denver-area in Colorado. The report was commissioned by and delivered to the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp. by economists Tucker Hart Adams and Patty Silverstein, who were hired to study the proposal's impact.
