Speed law passes through house

LANSING — A package of bills that would increase the speed limit on some of Michigan’s roads has passed through the House of Representatives.

House Bill 4423 passed by a three vote margin on Tuesday. That bill would allow the maximum speed to be raised on sections of rural limited access freeways to 75 miles per hour — and 65 on trunk line highways. Four other related bills also passed. The proposed legislation will now head to Michigan’s Senate.
