“The construction phase of Rover promises to create a number of economic benefits for the states through which the pipeline will pass. As recent reports in Ohio have indicated, these positive impacts are being realized — with the project having already spent more than $110 million in development. Further, local business owners are seeing a noticeable upswing in commerce as construction workers spend their paychecks at restaurants, hotels, campgrounds and grocery stores.”
