Speed limit increase vote on Tuesday

MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The Wisconsin Assembly is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a Republican bill to raise the speed limit on rural interstates.  The bill would make it legal to drive 70-miles-an-hour on the "I" outside of major cities -- and over the following year, the D-O-T would have to study the safety factors in raising the 65-limit on other four-lane highways. 

The original version of the bill spelled out two dozen places where the allowable speed would rise.  

Assembly Republican Paul Tittl of Manitowoc removed the larger list from the bill, saying he wanted to make things simpler by allowing the higher speed only on the Interstates for now.
