MADISON, WI (AP) - The state Assembly is poised to pass a bill this week that would raise the speed limit on Wisconsin's interstates.
The measure would raise the current 65 mph limit to 70 mph on the interstates and require state transportation officials to submit a study on the feasibility of raising the limit to 70 on other four-lane highways within a year.
An earlier version of the bill included a list of about two dozen segments of road where the limit would go to 70 mph. The proposal's author, Rep. Paul Tittl, a Manitowoc Republican, revised the language to remove the list, however. He said he wanted to make things simpler.
The Assembly is set to vote on the bill Tuesday afternoon. Approval would send the measure on to the Senate.
