Speed limit bill dies in Idaho

| 6/23/2003

A bill regulating speed limits on state highways as they pass through cities has died.

HB114 would have prevented local governments in Idaho from setting speed limits on state highways that pass through their boundaries. Under the bill, the state DOT would have set the speed limits. Officials from a number of Idaho cities opposed the measure.

According to a spokeswoman at the Legislature, the House, instead of scheduling the bill for a final vote, sent it back to the Transportation Committee, where it remained when the session ended.
