I was wondering whether the Legislature did, in fact, pass legislation raising interstate speed limits to 75? If so, when will that go into effect?
No speed limit increase became law. Both the House and Senate passed versions of a bill to increase to 75 mph the speed limit on rural portions of interstate highways in Kansas. But they disagreed on how much of a "buffer" to allow before a speeding ticket went onto a driver's record. With negotiations stalled at the end of the session, the chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee said the measure was likely to come back next year, but tied to a proposal to strengthen the state's seat-belt law.
