In Kentucky’s Senate, a proposal to raise the speed limit on parts of Kentucky’s interstate highways has cleared a hurdle.
The Senate Transportation Committee approved a plan today, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007, that would increase the interstate speed limit to 70 miles per hour.
The maximum speed permitted on interstates is currently 65 miles per hour.
Governor Fletcher called for the increased speed limits last year. The bill now heads to the full Senate for consideration.
