I live in Maryland where voters passed Question 4 (otherwise know as MDs version of the Dream Act, not really stated as this in the ballot) on election day and while I voted against this measure, I realized those against it did very little to advertise this. But to get to my question, can this act be repealed?

Lawmakers making a law to repeal it.

Get it on the ballot again with enough signatures.

That can't happen. The only route to repeal in MD after passage from referendum is Legislative action, which won't happen either.

A total change in political parties in the Legislature and Governor's Mansion.

Also, if the Dream Act doesn't live up to its expectations (generating $60mill, etc) will the residents of MD have a choice to void it?

Generate $60M? Haven't heard that. I will say that the estimated costs are likely vastly understated (that's usual in MD).

No, the citizens have spoken in November.
