WI Speed Limit Bill Continues Coasting Through the Capitol
WI Speed Limit Bill Moves Forward
A bill that would increase speed limits on some Wisconsin highways and freeways has coasted through another green light at the Capitol.
The state Assembly Transportation Committee voted 12-1 in favor of the measure Tuesday.
The full Assembly is expected to vote on it this month.
The bill allows the Department of Transportation to increase speed limits to 70 mph in approved areas, up from the current 65 mph limit.
Committee members rejected an amendment that would have established a lower speed limit for commercial vehicles.
