State Senate Leader Says Higher Speed Limit, Tougher Drunk Driving Bills Will Not Be Considered

 

You won’t be driving 70 miles an hour legally in Wisconsin anytime soon.

A proposal passed by the state Assembly to raise the speed limit back in October is getting locked out of the state Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald cites concerns that raising the speed limit could lead to more traffic deaths.

Stiffer drunk driving penalties passed this fall by the state Assembly will also not be considered by the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says more treatment options should be made available as opposed to tougher sentences.

The Assembly bill would have made second drunk driving arrests a misdemeanor and fourth arrests a felony with mandatory prison time.
