Illinois: Governor Says Speed Limit Increase Needs Study

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says he'll have to take a close look at legislation raising the speed limit on Illinois highways.

The senate voted this week to increase the speed limit on interstate highways and tollways from 65 miles per hour to 70.

Governor Quinn won't say whether he supports the idea and says it will need careful review.

Opponents say motorists already drive too far over the speed limit and this would make them go even faster.

The bill still faces a vote in the house.
