Speed limit package stalls on the House floor

LANSING — A package of bills that could increase the speed limit on some of Michigan’s roads has stalled in the State House of Representatives.

House Bill 4423, which would allow the limit to be raised on sections of rural limited access freeways and trunk line highways, was postponed temporarily along with some of the other bills that constitute the package. Representative Marilyn Lane (D-Fraser) spoke out against the proposal during the House session on Wednesday, citing the state of disrepair on Michigan’s roads.

Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) voiced similar concerns when he spoke with ABC 10 about these bills earlier in the month.
