MADISON (WKOW) – Drivers will get a chance to weigh in on a Republican bill that would raise Wisconsin's speed limit.
The Assembly transportation committee is hosting a public hearing on Tuesday at the state capitol and is inviting public input.
The bill would change the state's current maximum 65 mph speed limit to 70 mph on freeways and highways with four or more lanes.
The bill is getting mixed reviews. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos supports the bill but Senate Republican leaders say they don't have any plans to take the measure up anytime soon. Gov. Scott Walker has yet to take a position on the proposed bill.
