Bill increasing Wisconsin's speed limit to 70 mph heads to full Assembly

The Assembly Committee on Transportation voted Tuesday in favor of increasing Wisconsin's maximum speed limit to 70 miles per hour. 

“I am very pleased,” said Representative Paul Tittl (R-Manitowoc), the bill's author.  \"This is a common sense bill that Democrats and Republicans support.” 

The committee rejected an amendment that would have allowed the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to establish a 65 mph limit for commercial vehicles.  

The bill will head to the full Wisconsin State Assembly later this month.
