Senate Mulls 80 MPH Speed Limits

Raise Idaho speed limits on some roads to 80 mph? That’s what Senate leaders are mulling, the Idaho Statesman’s Dan Popkey reports today. Popkey writes that Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, broke the news about the pending bill in a talk yesterday to the Idaho Association of Association Executives, after getting permission from Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, who’s working on the bill. House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, who spoke after Hill, also made reference to the proposal, saying, “There are areas where that would be OK and areas where that would not be OK”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Would you support 80 mph speed limits in some parts of the state?
